The Hottest State

Rated R 117 minutes 2007

William is a good-looking young actor. He may be vain and cocky, but his doubt manifests itself in endearing self-criticism. Sarah is a beautiful singer-songwriter. Coincidence and a divinely wintry day bring them together and they begin a fevered, fitful romance. A few short weeks into their relationship, swept up in the giddy currents of their youthful love, they almost marry. But when Sarah changes her mind, William's world crumbles. They fight, they break up, he is devastated. After numerous desperate bids to win her back, William flees to his Texas homeland in search of answers about relationships and his own past. His trip takes him across the stunning western landscape and sees him reuniting his parents, whose own adolescent romance looms large on the horizons of William's identity and insecurities.
