Synopsis

On a summer night in Harlem during her last months at home before starting college, seventeen-year-old poet Ayanna (Zora Howard) meets Isaiah (Joshua Boone), a charming music producer who has just moved to the city. It’s not long before these two artistic souls are drawn together in a passionate summer romance. But as the highs of young love give way to jealousy, suspicion, and all-too-real consequences, Ayanna must confront the complexities of the adult world—whether she is ready or not. Emotionally raw, intimate, and honest, Premature is at once timeless and bracingly contemporary in its portrait of a young woman navigating the difficult choices that can shape a life.

Reviews:

Premature is one of the year's best films.” – Chicago Reader

 

“Green takes a slight story and packs it with attitude and feeling. Every moment rings true, the vividly textured locations and knockabout relationships more visited than created.” – The New York Times

 

"A tender ballad-not just about love but age, opportunity, timing-that gets stuck in your head.” – RogerEbert.com

 

“It's difficult, it's scary, and it's heartbreaking at times...A rapturous heart-wrenching love story.” – TheWrap
