NORMAL ADOLESCENT BEHAVIOR will premiere on September 1st on Lifetime at 9pm EST. Check your local listings for exact times in your area and tune in — this is a great chance to see the film with its original title and as it was originally intended — I’m told the edits are minimal and the trailer on Lifetime actually sold the movie really well. It should run somewhat regularly through the fall.

Thanks so much for tuning in and/or setting your Tivo.

ps — try and catch Agnieszka Holland’s indie film A Girl Like Me” also premiering on Lifetime. I know, I can’t believe I’m shilling for the network I most associate with Meredith Baxter-Birney movies but they have good stuff on!!!

Variety, Ronnie Scheib

A remarkably assured directorial debut. A wholly unsensationalistic, supremely lucid film…Neither gross-out puberty comedy nor teenage angstfest, sprightly, fascinating coming-of-ager (is) strongly character-driven

The Auteurs

Part ‘Y Tu mama tabien,’ part ‘Mean Girls,’ part love story, part coming-of-age drama; ‘Normal Adolescent Behavior’ is likely to satisfy the cinephiles, who are curious to find a honest and realistic window today’s youth their world.

Ain’t It Cool News, Drew McWeeny

…It’s got something to say. It’s got real weight. This isn’t just some teen romance, and because it plays rough, it might actually generate some valuable dialogue between parents and their sexually active teens… As debut films go, this is one to be proud of. Bryan Whitefield

You can’t help but think of the films of John Hughes, particularly Pretty in Pink, where you see on screen all the things that kids really go through with added depth and a consideration that puts it well outside the usual mindless representations of teens usually coming from Hollywood.

    Outstanding!…i’m looking forward to it. Though I’m a bit nervous about the future decisions my TIVO makes for me once I’ve asked it to record something off Lifetime

    omg, that’s awesome. I had no idea. Lifetime is the best network ever! If only you’d cast Kellie Martin you could assure near ETERNAL rotation for NAB.

    Congratulations! Once you play on HBO, I will leave more than fourteen word posts.
