Twelve and Holding

Toronto Film Festival premiere nominated for the Independent Spirits' John Cassevetes Award, 12 AND HOLDING explores the complexities of children losing their innocence.

Three close knit, suburban12-year-olds, introverted Jacob (Conor Donovan), precocious Malee (Zoë Weizenbaum) and vulnerable Leonard (Jesse Camacho), start down a path of self-discovery and begin to distinguish their own voices from those of their parents. When Jacob’s twin brother dies, the trio bands together to grapple with feelings of revenge, the burden of grief and the indelible experiences of growing up.

12 AND HOLDING enters the intricate, and often humorous world where adolescence and adulthood collide, when parents at times seem as lost as their own children. As each family's personal challenges are revealed, they learn to better understand each other and their own realities.

"Smart, compassionate film making that captures both the intricacies and the tragedy of contemporary adolescence" - Crust, LA Times
