Trailer for Indie 'Cents' About a Pyramid Scheme Run by 12-Year-Olds
"I will not have you trivialize everything I have sacrificed to make things better for you." This fun indie flick plays nicely with the trailer for Gifted, also about a precocious young mathematician trying to hold her own in school. Cents is a coming-of-age film about a 12-year-old girl, played by Julia Flores, who uses her calculus skills to transform the penny drive at her school into a pyramid scheme. The cast includes Lillie Kolich, Jy Prishkulnik, Claire Carter, Monique Candelaria and Esodie Geiger. I was hoping this might be a hidden gem, but the trailer doesn't show much promise, unfortunately. Still worth a quick look.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Boone's Cents, direct from YouTube:
Sammy (Julia Flores), an uncommonly smart twelve-year-old girl, uses her gift for mathematics and enlists her frenemies to revamp the school penny drive into a major moneymaking operation. Cents is both written and directed by American filmmaker Christopher Boone, making his feature directorial debut after many comedy short films previously. He also writes for the site No Film School. The film was funded on Kickstarter and it first premiered originally back in 2015. Cents will be released direct to VOD starting November 15th this year.
