Rocket science - Reece Thompson, Anna Kendrick, Vincent Piazza, Jeffrey Blitz

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

From the director of Spellbound comes Jeffrey Blitz's narrative début, bristling with sharply written dialogue, a fresh faced cast and ingenious premise, Rocket science is proof that many a handicap can be overcome, no matter how daunting the obstacle.

Rising star Reece Thompson plays Hal Hefner, a 15-year-old high-school student with a minor yet socially alienating (and painful) disability: he stutters uncontrollably. Determined to work through the problem, and after falling in love with a brainy female classmate, Hal opts for an extreme route - he joins the school debating team, which sends him on a head first plunge into breakneck speech competitions - and offers a much-needed boost toward correcting the problem. This voluble comedy is as eloquent about love, self-realisation and adolescent angst as its protagonist is endearingly tongue-tied.
