The movie follows a 15-year-old introverted freshman who copes with his first love, the suicide of his best friend and his own mental illness.

Brook (Into the Wild, The Fighter, The Vow) also has the indie thriller Kill for Me coming up. The film reunites the composer with director Michael Greenspan following last year’s Adrian Brody-starring drama Wrecked. Kill for Me starring Katie Cassidy, Tracy Spiridakos and Donal Logue centers on two college roommates whose lives take an unexpected and deadly detour. Kyle Mann (Wrecked, Push) is producing the Independent Edge Films production. No word yet on a release date for the film.
