Rocket Science

'Rocket Science' follows the life of fifteen year-old Hal, an awkward kid with a stutter who wants to rise from obscurity and become an unlikely hero of his high school. Hal sees his chance when Ginny Ryerson - the ambitious, fast-talking star of the debate team - convinces him that he's got the raw talent to succeed at public speaking. Falling madly in love and discovering new confidence, Hal sets out on an improbable journey through the pitfalls and perils of the New Jersey suburbs. Deadpan comic and achingly real, 'Rocket Science' is "a metaphor for the insecurity and confusion felt by every sensitive soul trapped inside the bubble of adolescence." (The New York Times).
