Film description

Written and Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, this coming-of-age comedy-drama depicts the treacherous navigation of first love. The film has received three awards from the National Board of Review (including Best Film), four nominations at the 79th Golden Globe Awards and was named one of the best films of 2021 by the American Film Institute.

In the San Fernando Valley in 1973, 15-year old Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman), a high school student preparing for picture day, asks out 25-year old Alana Kane (Alana Haim), a photographer's assistant. The two develop a friendship as the film follows the travels, trials and tribulations of both their personal and occupational lives.
