Basking in a post-graduation glow, Roman teenagers Cate (Blu Yoshimi Di Martino;  Arianna) and Ferro (Luigi Fedele) feel like adults already. Planning a vacation to Morocco, getting jobs, and moving in together are just a few of the things this young couple is taking on. Oh, and having a baby. This last doesn't necessarily sit well with their parents, with Cate's irresponsible free-spirited father not being much of a financial help and Ferro's bickering parents constantly criticizing all his decisions. Yet they carry on, with both naive optimism and a comic awareness of their "colossal mistake." Heartfelt moments are matched with cartoonish humor, with writer/director Roan Johnson's script inspiring laughs and a comparison to family-dramedy authority Wes Anderson. Relative newcomers Di Martino and Fedele have an undeniable chemistry, combining relatable teenage anxieties with a strong calm that is only inspired by huge changes. Organized in nine-month segments leading up to the pregnancy, Johnson's third feature is a breezy family tale as lightweight and flowing as its title suggests.
