Girl Asleep is an eccentric coming of age story where the unexpected can be expected. Greta is 14-years-old and starting a new school. Lots of people want to be her friend: a dweeby kid named Elliot, a group of mean girls, and more. But then Greta isn’t sure she wants to be friends with anyone. It’s hard enough being a teenager; she’d almost prefer lonely detachment than to become mired in high school social mores. And then it happens—her parents decide to throw her a birthday party and they invite the whole school. Can anything be more mortifying? As the pressure builds, the atmosphere grows surrealistic, as Greta is forced to confront the chaotic world of teenaged existence brought to startling life in her own backyard. Highly original, Girl Asleep breathes refreshing new life into the teen film genre.
