Growing Up Smith Trailer

"I don't want to lose my best friend…" Good Deed Entertainment has revealed a trailer for a charming coming-of-age indie comedy titled Growing Up Smith, about a 10-year-old Indian boy living in America. Newcomer Roni Akurati plays Smith Bhatnagar, a likable youngster growing up in America in the late 70s with his Indian family. He falls for the girl next door, and goes all-in chasing her every way he can. The cast includes Brighton Sharbino as his love interest, plus Jason Lee, Anjul Nigam, Hilarie Burton, Poorna Jagannathan, Shoba Narayanan and Jake Busey. This looks adorable and amusing, but doesn't seem like anything to really write home about. But I'm always up for a good coming-of-age film. Give this a shot.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Frank Lotito's Growing Up Smith, direct from YouTube:

Growing Up Smith

When an Indian family moves to America in 1979 with the hope of living the American Dream, their 10-year-old-son, Smith (newcomer Roni Akurati), falls head-over-heels for the girl next door. With an American Dream of his own, Smith strives to become a "good ol' boy," propelling him and his family further away from their traditional ideals than ever before. Growing Up Smith is directed by filmmaker Frank Lotito, making his feature directorial debut after a short film previously. The screenplay is written by Gregory Scott Houghton, Anjul Nigam and Paul Quinn. This first premiered at the Seattle Film Festival last year, and also played at the Cleveland, Atlanta and Wisconsin Film Festivals earlier this year. Growing Up Smith opens in select theaters starting February 3rd, 2017 next year. Who's interested in seeing this?
