Those Who Wander is an independent film successfully funded by a Kickstarter campaign earlier this summer. Here is the synopsis of the movie from their campaign page:

Frustrated with midterms, the city, and her increasingly complicated love life, 19-year old Zoe sets off on a road trip down to her unpredictable and ill-advised best friend Sam’s childhood home in Georgia, with Sam’s judgmental older roommate Spencer, Zoe’s it’s-really-complicated-so-let’s-just-say-friends-with-benefits lover Joel, and a guy named Danny who correlates his mood to his socks.

Somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon line it quickly becomes evident that the ‘fun spring break week to relax and forget’ is never going to happen, because: Sam has some seriously unresolved issues with his temperamental stepfather, Spencer seems determined not to let Zoe have any fun and Joel’s mixed signals are driving everyone insane. Not to mention Sam’s narcissistic childhood best friend Trey, who’s made it his mission to stir up some trouble and come between Zoe and Sam.

Caught up in a whirlwind of midnight car sex, day-raves in parking garages and drug dealers named Tiger, Zoe and Sam will do anything to keep pretending nothings wrong.

Bonnie will play the title character, and Those Who Wander currently is set for a 2014 release.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
