CONFESSIONS OF A
TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN

Clothes. Music. Friends. Each is a minefield in every teenager’s daily battle – one wrong step and kaboom. Is it any wonder that the smallest decisions are played out with the highest drama? Such is life for Lola Cep. Lola feels her life is simply not worth living when she moves with her family from every single thing on the planet that she loves (read: the Big Apple) and is plunked down in the middle of the cultural wasteland that is suburban New Jersey. As she juggles making new friends at a new school while standing up to a new rival, Lola finds it hard enough just to live her life, let alone remember how important it is to live her dream. So much drama. So little time.

EUROTRIP

Have you ever pressed "Send" on an email and immediately wished you could get it back? Scotty Thomas (Scott Mechlowicz) and his Berlin-based computer pen pal Mieke (Jessica Boehrs) have been writing each other for years, sharing every detail of their lives. When Mieke makes a cyber pass at Scotty, he completely freaks out, thinking that this guy he’s known for years is coming on to him…in German no less. Too bad the the one detail Scotty doesn’t seem to know is that, in Germany, Mieke is a girl’s name.

By the time Scotty figures out that Mieke is a girl, and a hot one at that, Mieke has cut off her email account and all contact with him. Thinking that this might be his one chance at true love—even though he’s never actually met the girl—Scotty and his best friends, Cooper (Jacob Pitts) and the twins Jenny (Michelle Trachtenberg) and Jamie (Travis Wester), embark on a raucous trip across Europe headed for Berlin. Their trek takes them from London to Paris to Amsterdam and Eastern Europe, exposing them—literally—to every lascivious, larcenous and lecherous indulgence Europe has to offer, in a comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase "foreign relations."
