Youth is wasted on the young, they say. Young love is far too sweet to be said the same of. We all remember our first kiss, our first crush, our first heartbreak. It are these experiences that perhaps shape us more than most others. After all, who we are going to be is largely determined by who we choose to love.

This week on CinemaJaw, in honor of our Guest Darren Dean’s latest project PREMATURE, we dive into that molasses notalgia and pry out our Top 5 Young Love Movies.

As mentioned, joining us for another ‘Jaw is Producer extraordinaire, Darren Dean.

Darren Dean is a producer, writer and director, and a four-time Independent Spirit Award nominee. You may be most familiar with Darren’s frequent collaborations with Sean Baker on the award winning features PRINCE OF BROADWAY (which he co-wrote), TANGERINE, and 2017’s Oscar nominated THE FLORIDA PROJECT. He has also produced such award-winning fare as 2010’s KINYARWANDA (dir Alrick Brown), which won the World Cinema Audience Award at Sundance, and THE INFILTRATORS (dirs. Alex Rivera & Cristina Ibarra), which won the NEXT Audience Award and NEXT Innovator Award at Sundance in 2019.
