The First Time ★★★½

A feature length version of one of the really good early episodes of The OC. It's full of teen drama where sex - and trying to have it - is the most important thing in their lives, literally everything else is secondary. Of course, this is similar the older we get but it did feel like they were in a bubble of awkward fast learning and the 'should I/shouldn't I lean in for that kiss', something that gets a little less interesting the longer it goes on (yes yes, that's what she said etc well done).

Britt Robertson and Dylan O'Brien were immense and there was a scene so fantastically hard to watch I had 'Nam-esque flashbacks. Oh to Eternal Sunshine that memory! Get it watched for a laugh, a cry and a squirm.
