Flipped

USA Today features the trailer for Rob Reiner’s middle school romance, Flipped.

Everyone fondly remembers their first love. At least that is what Rob Reiner is counting on with Flipped, a romantic comedy about the bumpy relationship of a pair of eighth-graders that takes place between 1957 and 1963. “It feels a lot like Stand by Me,” he says, referring to his nostalgic 1986 reverie on ’50s boyhood. “It has the same tone.”

…Reiner, who co-wrote the script, moved the contemporary tale into the past during his own coming of age. “Today feels less innocent, and I didn’t want it to be about texting. I wanted it to be pure and simple while focusing on feelings.”

Flipped opens wide on August 27th following a couple of weeks in limited release.
