‘First Love’ Trailer: Terrence Malick’s Former Protégé Directs A Coming-Of-Age YA Romance Co-Starring Diane Kruger
“After your first, life is never the same,” is the tagline from “First Love,” the new film from A.J. Edwards, who worked closely with acclaimed director Terrence Malick throughout the last several years. “First Love” follows Jim (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) and Ann (Sydney Parker), two high school seniors who navigate a bourgeoning romantic relationship as they stand at the crossroads of their young lives. As the two teenagers fall for one another, Jim is set on attending UCLA on a track scholarship, while Ann is considering going to college in New York City, meaning that their love will potentially be cut short before it can blossom. Meanwhile, Jim’s parents (Jeffrey Donovan and Diane Kruger) are dealing with the consequences of an economic crisis.
