At only 30 years of age, director Chucho E. Quintero already has three feature films under his belt. His first, Six Pack, was a high school coming-of-age drama; his second, Velociraptor, a sci-fi gay sex comedy. Now he brings us These Peculiar Days, in which eight high school friends celebrate their graduation by heading out to a cabin in the woods. There they indulge in a wild weekend of partying and enflamed passions. These Peculiar Days is a moving drama about young people on the brink of adulthood, learning about love, life and friendship.
