Young adults can truly learn more about their place in the world, and how they fit into society, as they set out on a soul searching journey for their true love. This life-affirming voyage is the driving force in Shockya’s new exclusive clip from the upcoming romance dramedy, ‘Brightest Star.’

The clip follows the film’s protagonist, played by Chris Lowell, as he tries to reinvent himself after being dumped by his first love. As he walks through the lab of an astronomer, played by Allison Janney, she asks him why he was touching her telescope. She then expresses interest in finding a way to fix her telescope herself, like such great scientists as Galileo have done, since she’s able to build the instrument herself. The two also start to bond when he mentions how she’s like one of the smartest scientists and philosophers in ancient history.

‘Brightest Star,’ which is set to be released in theaters on January 31 by Gravitas Ventures, was directed by first-time feature filmmaker, Maggie Kiley. The helmer also co-wrote the script for the romance movie with Matthew Mullen. The two based the film on the acclaimed 2009 short dramedy they wrote together, ‘Some Boys Don’t Leave,’ which starred Jesse Eisenberg and Kiley directed.

Gravitas Ventures released the following synopsis for ‘Brightest Star’:

After the heartbreaking end of his first love, a recent college graduate sets out to win back the girl of his dreams only to discover a greater journey awaits him.

Fresh out of college, a young man (Lowell) is left devastated when the girl of his dreams dumps him. Refusing to move on, he devises a plan to transform himself into the man she desires. After resigning himself to working for the head of a company in corporate mediocrity (Clark Gregg), he falls for a hipster songstress (Jessica Szohr) who likes him as he is. As his path continues to unfold unexpectedly, the counsel of a kindred spirit astronomer (Janney) helps him understand how to truly carve out a place in the universe.
