Now on DVD, THE EDUCATION OF CHARLIE BANKS is a critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story about learning to deal with life, love and ultimately facing one’s fears.

Winning “Best New York Narrative” at the Tribeca Film Festival, THE EDUCATION OF CHARLIE BANKS marks the directorial debut of Limp Bizkit front-man Fred Durst, and has been called “stunning and relevant,” featuring “good performances by a bright young cast,” including Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Ritter and Eva Amurri.

Charlie Banks’ sheltered world at his Ivy League campus is shaken up when Mick, an old acquaintance with a dangerous past, unexpectedly shows up. As the charismatic Mick quickly wins over Charlie’s friends and his crush, he seamlessly integrates himself into Charlie’s life. Unnerved, yet also in awe of Mick’s easy charm, Charlie’s unresolved feelings of jealousy, admiration and fear – as well as an unspoken secret between the two – threaten to come to a head.
