In "The First Time," Dave (Dylan O'Brien) is a high school senior who spends most of his time pining away over a girl he can’t have.
Aubrey (Britt Robertson), a junior with artistic aspirations, has a hot boyfriend who doesn’t quite understand her or seem to care.
Dave and Aubrey meet one night at a party. A casual conversation sparks an instant connection, and, over the course of a weekend, things turn magical, romantic, complicated and funny as Aubrey and Dave discover what it's like to fall in love for the first time.
Director/screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan skillfully captures a moment of adolescence that rings resolutely true.
