    A dude writes erotic fan fiction, and meets a girl who is into it too. She helps him find himself.

    A Really lovely coming of age story, im in no way interested in fan fiction, but this movie shows that theyre people too, and it just feels good. Let people do what they like, no judging, spread love.

  • ★★★½ review by mheaney14 on Letterboxd

    A pretty fun, if flawed, little flick. I guess I'm a little conflicted on this one. The central premise opens the door for plenty of hilariously ridiculous comedy and Michael Johnston's Neil is an endlessly lovable portrayal of teenage confusion. On the flip side, however, Hannah Marks' pixie-dream-girl-esque depiction of Julia never becomes anything more than a frustrating cliche and the central theme seems to venture beyond endearingly quirky and into genuinely creepy a bit more than I think I'm comfortable with. I don't know. I still had a pretty great time with Slash and it clearly does have a lot of heart behind it. I would watch it again but I would be cautious recommending it to others.
