I love Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on Modern Family, so I’m looking forward to seeing her new film, XOXO, which launches globally on Netflix on August 26. I must admit, though, I found myself wishing it was a series, because I’m always looking for a good series to watch, and this sounds like it’d make a great one.
And by the way, have you seen Stranger Things yet? Oh my gosh, it’s one of the most compelling and yet simple series I’ve seen in a long time. Simple in terms of straightforward. In a sci-fi mystery way. It’s on Netflix right now. Go check it out.
Directed by Christopher Louie and written by Dylan Meyer, XOXO is an ensemble, coming-of-age movie about a group of early 20-somethings on a crazy adventure to the biggest EDM festival in America – called XOXO.
The film follows six strangers whose lives collide in one frenetic, dream-chasing, hopelessly romantic night. At the center is Ethan, a young DJ who gets a last minute slot to perform after his tracks go viral online days before the festival. This is a huge opportunity … if he can just make it there in one piece.
Along with Hyland, the film stars Graham Phillips (The Good Wife), Brett DelBuono, Chris D’Elia (Undateable), Haley Kiyoko (Jem & The Holograms), Colin Woodell (Masters of Sex), Ryan Hansen (Party Down, 2 Broke Girls), Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0) and Ione Skye (Say Anything).
