The New Romantic

True North | True North

Blake (The End of the F**cking World’s Jessica Barden) is in the awkward position of being a university sex columnist despite her limited experience in such realms. Idolizing Hunter S. Thompson and hoping to score a lucrative cash award, she goes full gonzo in a bid to see how the "sugar babies" live. Lavished with expensive gifts by Ian, an older suitor (Timm Sharp), she senses her own self-worth eroding. Influenced by Ephron, Bushenell and Austen, Carly Stone’s insightful comedy depicts the macabre fairy tale that modern dating has become.
