    Synopsis: 

    Classmates but virtual strangers, Caroline and Anthony have more in common than they know. Homebound due to illness, Caroline is something of a loner. So when popular student Anthony unexpectedly arrives to work on a school project about Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, she is less than thrilled. But, as the poetry project progresses, Caroline finds herself opening up in ways she never imagined possible, and the two discover a deeper mystery has brought them together. An ode to life, love and human connection, "I and You" will warm your heart and leave you breathless.

    ‘I and You’ Is Lauren Gunderson’s Sentimental Character Study

    Ben Brantley

    January 27, 2016: If you have dipped into the tear-filled pools of young adult literature — or the films inspired by it — you have probably encountered a couple like Caroline and Anthony. They’re the sparring, sparking high school students in “I and You,” Lauren Gunderson’s perky two-character study in adolescent confusions and cosmic mysteries, which opened on Wednesday at 59E59 Theaters. Portrayed with equal measures of impishness and angst by Kayla Ferguson and Reggie D. White, Caroline and Anthony are unlikely to be to the taste of everybody over 12. So listen to a few examples of what they have to say about themselves (and each other) and decide whether you want to spend 90 minutes in their company. She is combative and snarly — “small but mighty, like a dachshund,” she says. He is a tall basketball player who believes in the virtues of politeness and doing your homework. He practically lives on Pop-Tarts; she unconditionally loves Chunky Monkey ice cream. She digs Elvis; he’s into Coltrane.
