Amber Heard stars in a Jonathan Levine’s independent movie entitled “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane”. This new movie is about a Mandy Lane (Heard), a good girl who becomes the object of everyone’s affection. She gets invited by a group of high school students during the summer break to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. As the party ravages on, the number of revelers seems to drop mysteriously. All the Boys Love Mandy Lane also stars Anson Mount, Whitney Able and Michael Welch. This movie premiered in the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006.

“TIFF Review for Jonathan Levine’s All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
The provocatively-titled “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” premiered to much acclaim and fanfare at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. A $750,000-budgeted teen horror picture that excelled at its multiple genres and seemed destined for wide appeal, it was quickly snatched up by The Weinstein Company, who paid an exorbitant $3-million-plus for distribution rights. As is characteristic of TWC, the studio began shuffling the release date, scheduling it for July 20, 2007, following a couple winter and spring delays. Mere days before this Friday opening, the release was canceled again.
Senator Entertainment, a new up-and-coming company, bought “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” from the Weinsteins shortly thereafter, promising an early-2008 berth on no less than 1,000 screens. The early months of the new year came and went. Rumors of an April 2008 release never materialized, with Senator throwing out some cockamamie story about how they wanted to sit on the film until director Jonathan Levine’s sophomore effort, Sundance favorite “The Wackness,” opened in the summer and gained the filmmaker some wider cred. Sure enough, “The Wackness” came out in July, but its mediocre box-office in limited release didn’t exactly set the world on fire as Senator had assumed. Now, as of this writing in October 2008, “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” sits in release date limbo, over two years and two distributors after its buzzed-about film fest premiere. Will it ever see the light of day on U.S. screens? Yes, most likely in 2009, but how does one accurately sell a movie to audiences that is now widely available for download on internet torrents and already out on DVD and BluRay in the UK?
One can only hope “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” finds its rightful audience after the unfair abuse it has taken from the clueless Hollywood studio system. The film, twisting in fresh ways that set it apart from the usual paint-by-numbers slasher flick—in this way, it is reminiscent of 2005′s expertly conceived “High Tension”—has been made with an unusual love and care for detail. This becomes exceedingly apparent from the prologue, a journey through a typical high school hallway scored to Bedroom Walls’ gorgeous song “In Anticipation of Your Suicide” that leads to a back-to-school party embodying the insecurity, fun, and foolish sense of immortality that comes with being a teenager.”

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is scheduled to be released on September 6th 2013.
