A teenager tackles the mysteries of life, love and public speaking in <i>Rocket Science</i>, a wry comedy of adolescent angst by Jeffrey Blitz, director of the Academy Award-nominated documentary <i>Spellbound</i>. Making his feature narrative debut, Blitz leaves behind the conventions and cliches of coming-of-age tales to instead conjure a world where everyone, regardless of age, is befuddled by desire and the longing for human connection. Mixing humor with a compassionate regard for his characters and their idiosyncrasies, Blitz creates a film about the little insights that can emerge from, and ultimately eclipse, the agonies and disappointments of youth.
