The Visions of Dylan Bradley
The Visions of Dylan Bradley is the M.F.A. graduate thesis film of filmmaker Christine Vartoughian. The 16‑minute comedy short has received a 2011 CINE Golden Eagle Award and screened at twenty film festivals internationally. Her most current project is the feature film Living with the Dead.
Synopsis: With one eye that's piercing blue and another that's dark brown, sixteen-year-old Dylan Bradley doesn't always see "eye to eye". When she falls in love with a sweet Christian boy, whose mission it is to live a life of virtue, she concocts a series of schemes to seduce Paul into having premarital sex. After several mortifying failures, Dylan is forced to examine her own belief in God and take a second look at Paul and the pedestal she placed him on.
