Supernova Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Meis is bored to death. Living in a modest, middle-of-nowhere country home with her paranoid mother, lethargic father, and demented grandmother, the Dutch teenager spends her summer willing something interesting to happen—even if it’s a car crashing into their house, which sits at a ninety-degree turn in the road. Throughout the film, Meis’s voice-over recites what sound like excerpts from a physics textbook—explaining the laws of movement, energy, and force—which allude to her teenage struggle with budding sexuality. After sneaking out one night to watch the town partiers drink, dance, and fool around, she returns home to find a wrecked car in the front of the house. Meis becomes fixated on the driver, a twenty-something Russian man, who recovers from the accident on the family couch.
