Cherries and Clover is a 2013 Canadian coming-of-age romantic comedy I wrote and directed when I was 19 starring Taylor Marie Milton and Spencer Jenkins. The entire cast, crew and development team were all composed exclusively of volunteers between 14 and 19 years of age so it is the world's first feature length film made "by teenagers, for teenagers." Shot in 2008, before the proliferation of HD video, for under $10,000, and often under illegal conditions, the production was a complete circus and really fun adventure.
When Clover's (Spencer Jenkins) childhood friend, Cherries (Taylor Marie Milton), returns to his hometown after a ten year separation, he finds himself immediately attracted to her still outgoing, spontaneous personality. It isn't long before their rekindled friendship develops into a sweet, quirky romance - but how long will it last?
