WINNER - Top Five Documentaries, NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW 2012
In theatres on February 15, 2013 DVD/Blu-ray available on May 28, 2013
ONLY THE YOUNG follows the story of three teenagers that live in a small desert town in Southern California - a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. These kids must find things to do in a place that offers nothing - yet in the course of observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims' delicate, ethereal filmmaking and ONLY THE YOUNG's innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence.
