This week on End Credits, we unofficially kick off the new year by getting into some new movie reviews. Our pick this week hails from Mexico, but it has some surprisingly familiar themes if you’re a big fan of stories about teenage romance. Speaking of teenage-based drama, let’s just say this week’s show is a boon if you’re looking for something to watch in that genre!
This Wednesday, January 12, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Naught Another Teen Movie. Before we dive into this week’s movie, which is a teen romance melodrama on Netflix, we will spend the first part of this week’s show talking about other teen drama you can find on various streamers. From a gender-switch take on a turn of a century classic to a west coast answer to Degrassi High, from a franchise we’ve visited before on this show to the seedy underbelly of Palm Springs (?), we’re teen crazy this week.
REVIEW: Anonymously Yours (2021). You ever get a text from someone you don’t know who thinks they’re texting with someone else? Did it ever end with you finding true love? Well this is the movie for you! Two Mexican teens – Vale and Alex – are you’re average, everyday high school seniors both anticipating and dreading the end of school, but then a case of mistaken textual identity brings them into each other’s orbit. Will Vale and Alex figure out that they’re secretly texting each other while also falling in love IRL? What do you think, and what do we think?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
