Alec Baldwin is Martin, the wealthy stepfather of Mini (played charmingly by Nikki Reed). Mini is a sexy mess. She's clever and has a healthy libido. And she's on a mission to stir up as much trouble as she can before her high school graduation. It's pretty clear where Mini got her conniving streak from-her mom (Carrie-Anne Moss) who spends more time partying than with her husband. Diana quickly becomes the third wheel when Martin and Mini's relationship escalates. A series of disturbing events at their posh modern house finally prompts the arrival of John (Luke Wilson) as a nosey detective on the case. Jeff Goldblum delivers another shot of star quality playing the cheesy TV show host who lives next door. But just as these quirky Southern California desperados are about to spin out of control, Mini steps in to save (or is it ruin?) the day. She's a spitfire with a plan, and beware those who stand in her way. Part Heather and part Lolita, Mini's a girl to watch out for in this delightfully warped comedy.
Nick Guthe is premiering his first feature, Mini's First Time, at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. After graduating from Princeton, Guthe moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being a director. A series of night jobs later, he landed his first screenwriting job for celebrated Hollywood producer Roger Corman. He and his wife then co-directed a short film, Voice Male, which was a Hudson Valley Film Festival selection. Before long, Guthe wrote Mini's First Time. Though at first an independent film rollercoaster, the movie was eventually financed by Bold Films. Soon Alec Baldwin joined the cast, followed by Nikki Reed, Luke Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum. The premiere of Mini's First Time feels like a homecoming for a director proud to hail from Brooklyn.
