The blurb: Named one of the top five shorts at the Tribeca Film Festival by New York Magazine. “Love Does Grow on Trees” is a coming of age comedy about a teenage boy whose life is thrown into chaos when he discovers adult magazines, girls and the embarrassment that goes with both.
This film depicts a simpler time when the only way a teenager might see porn was via magazines – especially “wild” ones found in parks and woods. It has a rather sweet sensibility that I enjoyed.
