Cherry is a 2010 independent drama film that tells the story of a troubled young man named Aaron Kunkel, played by Kyle Gallner, who struggles with the aftermath of a traumatic experience. Directed by Jeffrey Fine, the film sheds light on the effect of trauma on different individuals and how they cope with it differently. The plot revolves around Aaron, a high school student who has just lost his mother in a car accident. Struggling to cope with his loss, Aaron is thrown into a tailspin and spirals into depression. He withdraws himself from his friends and family, including his father Steve (played by Esai Morales), who is struggling with his own grief.

In an attempt to cope with his pain, Aaron starts seeing a therapist, which seems to help him find some semblance of normalcy. But things take a turn when Aaron has an unexpected encounter with Linda (Laura Allen), a married woman whom he meets at a parking lot. The two strike up a conversation, and Linda, who is going through her own marital issues, starts to take an interest in Aaron.

Their friendship soon turns into a romantic relationship, and Aaron finds comfort and solace in Linda's company. However, as their affair continues, Aaron starts to spiral out of control, and his life takes a dangerous turn.

Throughout the film, we see Aaron struggling to come to terms with his pain and trauma, increasingly becoming disconnected from his family, friends, and reality. He turns to drugs and alcohol to cope, lashing out at those around him, and engaging in reckless behavior.

Another central character to the film is Beth (Britt Robertson), an aspiring actress who is also struggling with her own issues. She forms a close bond with Aaron, and the two are able to provide each other with support and understanding in their struggles.

Cherry is a poignant coming-of-age story that explores the complexities of trauma, grief, and relationships. It touches on themes of loss, addiction, and the effects of trauma on mental health. The film provides a nuanced perspective on the way different individuals cope with significant events and how love can sometimes complicate their path to healing.

The performances in the film are exceptional, with Gallner delivering a raw and emotional portrayal of Aaron's inner turmoil. Laura Allen is equally impressive as Linda, capturing the complexity of her character's emotions and motivations. Britt Robertson brings a depth of sincerity to her role as Beth, providing a much-needed anchor in Aaron's chaotic world.

Overall, Cherry is a must-see film for anyone looking for a cathartic and emotionally resonant journey. It is a dramatic, heartbreaking, and hopeful film that speaks to the human experience in a way that is both relatable and deeply moving.

Cherry is a 2010 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
