GENRE: Romantic Drama
During the Summer of Love, Bruno—an optimistic eighteen-year-old bound for Berkeley and yearning for intimacy – embarks on a discreet affair with his jockish, closeted step-cousin Walt, until competing desires and the Vietnam War threaten to break apart their enraptured but delicate bond.
Matthew Eng is a 2015 graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Cinema Studies. Matthew is currently part of the Editorial Team at Tribeca Film and is an ongoing contributor to the popular cinephile site The Film Experience. His full-length screenplay Janie and Junie Go to Mars received readings from both the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London and the Bechdel Group, a monthly NYC reading series devoted to challenging portrayals of women in film and on stage. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Matthew’s favorite movies are all psychological dramas about complex women who lie to themselves and he would truly appreciate it if someone could give Gena Rowlands another great part. Maybe he’ll do it.
