In an age of mass shootings when the debate over gun control rages on, some recent films, such as Jessica Chastain’s new film “Miss Sloane” tackle the subject head on. Another new film “Sins of Our Youth” also explores this topic, capturing the intersection of gun culture and foolish adolescence. The film follows four teenagers who accidentally murder a younger boy while shooting off assault weapons recreationally, and the perilous decisions they make in the aftermath of the murder. In a moment of desperation and fear, the four teenagers drunkenly construct a plan reminiscent of a video-game plot, but it’s only a catalyst for more confusion and pain. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
The film is directed by Gary Entin and written by his twin brother Edmund Entin, both of whom previously worked on the films “Geography Club” and “My Eleventh.” “Sins of Our Youth” stars Lucas Till (“X-Men: First Class”), Joel Courtney (“Super 8”), Mitchel Musso (“Monster House”), Bridger Zadina (“Terri”) and Ally Sheedy (“The Breakfast Club”).
“Sins of Our Youth” premiered at the Woods Hole Film Festival in Cape Cod in 2014. It will open in Los Angeles and select cities on December 2, and on DVD and all major North American VOD platforms on December 6.
