Pretty much everybody involved with "The First Time" was surprised that it was selected for the Sundance Film Festival.
Stars Dylan O'Brien and Britt Robertson both said they weren't expecting it. And writer/director Jonathan Kasdan agreed, "because it's a different kind of movie than you usually see here."
Different, at least, from the kind of movie most people — including Kasdan — expect to see at Sundance.
"Now, it's unfair for me to say too much because I have only been here once in my life," he said. "But my impression of it is what comes here is a kind of gritty, powerful movie like "Precious" or there's a movie called 'Filly Brown' that is a traditional Sundance movie.
"And this is a very John Hughes-ian romantic comedy. So I was thrilled and delighted."
