Girlfriend Trailer featuring Jackson Rathbone

Girlfriend will be making its world debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September. The trailer debuted today on the Facebook page for Girlfriend. You can also keep up to date when release dates and other information regarding the movie by following @girlfriendmovie on Twitter.

I have to say after watching the trailer the movie looks very interesting and maybe just a little sad. Can’t wait to see it.

Movie Description
When an unexpected financial windfall affords a young man with Down Syndrome some freedom, he decides to pursue the object of his high school crush, Candy. The decision brings him into conflict with her volatile ex-boyfriend, and the three find themselves involved in a complex, unpredictable triangle of love, aspiration and dreams.


  1. Watch the trailer. This looks like a wonderful movie. And thanks to Jackson Rathbone it is going to get alot of attention. I really hope it does well at the Toronto Film Festival. Godd luck to you all! Great job.

    I’m so excited to see this! Being a fan of 100 Monkeys I’ve heard about this film. Apparently the band did all of the original score as well. I also hope that more of Jackson’s fans are drawn to this movie not only to see his range but also the other actor’s as well. Looks amazing

  3. My sister worked on this film as a production assistant and says the movie will be great! Can’t wait to see it!

  4. wow :))

  5. look’s very promising, I should remember to see this movie.

    I’d say there is about a 100% chance I would cry during this movie. Definitely looks good. I have a 21 year old brother who has Downs, who happens to be staying with us for the week while my parents are out of town, so it hits home for me. Oh, and Jackson looks yummy. lol I had to say it.

  7. it looks messed up.

  8. Yikes! Talk about controversial subject matter. It appears to me Jackson plays the “bad guy,” too. Not sure I’m ready to see him that way. Call me a Polly-Anna, but I don’t generally watch movies that make me uncomfortable. For example, no matter how award-worthy “Precious” is, I will probably never watch it.

    I will say tho, that I’m glad they are using a person who really has Downs rather than a “normal” actor. My best friend has two special needs kiddos.
