Description

Director Benjamin Kasulke Attending!

The end of high school is a time of budding and withering relationships alike. In Benjamin Kasulke's debut dramedy, Banana Split, a newly blossomed friendship may be destined for the pruning shears. High school classmates April (played by co-writer Hannah Marks), Nick (Dylan Sprouse), and Ben (Luke Spencer Roberts) are a close circle of friends up until the summer before college when April and Nick, who have been dating for two years, suddenly break up. As Ben struggles to maintain both friendships, he introduces his childhood friend Clara (Liana Liberato) who begins to date Nick and covertly becomes best friends with April. Now Ben is stuck in the middle, hanging out with the two girls behind his best friend's back. Plus, Nick and April still have feelings for each other. Now everyone has secrets and everyone feels like a third wheel. The group's dynamic gets very complicated as they try to navigate their last few weeks together before leaving town.
