This June 28th, 2002, New York and Los Angeles will host the debut of Pumpkin. The comedy follows perfect Carolyn (Christina Ricci) as she navigates a minefield of pesky sorority sisters and doubting onlookers as she uncovers warm fuzzy feelings for the “slow” kid:
When Carolyn’s assigned to coach Pumpkin (Hank Harris) she’s terrified at first, but soon sees in him something she’s never seen before: a gentle humanity and honest clarity that touches her soul. To the horror of her friends and Pumpkin’s overprotective mother (Brenda Blethyn), Carolyn falls in love, becoming an outcast in the process. As Carolyn’s “perfect life” falls apart, Pumpkin teaches her that perfect isn’t always perfect after all.
It sounds slightly fluffy, but with Ricci at the helm, Pumpkin will probably pack a lot of humor into the pink perkiness. To navigate Carolyn’s dilemma for yourself, and for a glimpse at cast bios and more, stop by the official Pumpkin site.
