Contending with first love, and how the strong intensity that accompanies it influences important life choices, is a vital part of maturing into adulthood. The new official poster for the drama, ‘Grass Stains,’ which stars Tye Sheridan and Kaitlyn Dever as two teens who fall in love with each other, has been released.
The poster’s unveiling coincides with Deckplate Films, in association with Bow and Arrow Entertainment and American Film Productions, offering Concourse Media the chance to lead domestic sales. Before ‘Grass Stains’ is officially distributed, the movie is set to have its world premiere today at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
The drama was written and directed by Kyle Wilamowski. The movie follows a teenager, Conrad Stevens, who’s played by Sheridan, as he must balance the emotions he feels while falling in love for the first time with the guilt he holds for a tragic mistake from a prank gone awry.
‘Grass Stains’ was produced by Haven Entertainment, as well as Steve Olivera, Matthew Perniciaro, Kevin Mann and Michael Sherman. It was executive produced by Rachel Miller, Mauricio Betancur, George Voskericyan, Juan Luna, Josh Cole, Jonathan Miller, Rick Matros and Tim Donahoe.
“Tye and Kaitlyn’s powerful chemistry makes Grass Stains one of the most honest and relatable coming of age stories we have seen,” said James Andrew Felts of Concourse Film Trade. “This film takes you right back to being a kid on summer break, dealing with first love and navigating those big life choices. We can’t wait to see audiences embrace this movie in Santa Barbara.”
Olivera also noted that the story in ‘Grass Stains’ “is very universal. Whether it’s first love or first tragedy, these memorable events give birth to our deepest emotional needs and we spend our lives learning how to live with them.”
