READ MORE: LAFF Review: ‘The Young Kieslowski’ is Yet Another Pregnancy Comedy
A new exclusive trailer for “The Young Kieslowski” finds two students accidentally expecting after a drunken encounter at a college party.
The film follows an intelligent physics student, Brian Kieslowski (Ryan Malgarini), who drunkenly loses his virginity to the equally-inexperienced Leslie Mallard (Haley Lu Richardson). The two soon find that Leslie is pregnant and seemingly wants to keep the child and start a life together. Despite the film’s serious premise — and its grappling with the choice to not have an abortion at a young age — it’s a comedy, relying on Brian’s missteps and awkwardness for laughs. The story explores the nature of first relationships, along with how to control unexpected conflict while just being a college student.
“The Young Kieslowski” won the Audience Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and will premiere in select theaters and VOD on July 24.
