High school loner Robert (Ezra Miller of TV's Californication) would rather surf the web watching extreme videos than make friends at his prestigious boarding school. So when he's forced to take part in a campus activity, Robert naturally chooses a film-making class, which has the added attraction of Amy (Addison Timlin), his sort-of girlfriend. When he unintentionally videotapes the accidental overdose of two popular girls, Robert becomes the least likely person imaginable to be assigned the task of creating a soothing memorial tribute.
In his bold, audacious debut, writer-director Antonio Campos creates a mood suspense and mystery. Afterschool marks the emergence of a major new talent in film.
