Rob Reiner’s FLIPPED

Fans of both Rob Reiner and YA author Wendelin Van Draanen have been eagerly awaiting Reiner’s movie of Van Draanen’s novel, Flipped.

Reiner has changed the contemporary setting of the novel to the late ’50s and early ’60s. The story is about the love/hate relationship between two eighth graders; you can’t help but think “Stand by Me meets When Harry Met Sally.”

In an interiew in USA Today, Reiner credits his 16-year-old son Nick, for introducing him to the book.

The movie set will open in most theaters on August 27; it will open in a limited number of theaters in early August.
