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 f-rced 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.
