But their 16-year age difference, and the potential consequences that go with it, forces Jesse to finally figure out what he wants out of life.

The dialogue is uncommonly well-honed, particularly when Jesse and Zibby argue good taste vs. mindless escapism over a series of vampire novels that could only be the “Twilight” books. But the fledgling helmer also draws uniformly robust performances out of his cast, including Allison Janney as a prickly literature professor, Zac Efron as a hippy-dippy campus visitor and, ironically, “Twilight” actress Elizabeth Reaser as a fetching book shop owner.

Extras: Deleted scenes, commentary and a frustratingly short behind-the-scenes featurette.
