Hoping to put the disaster that was The Last Airbender behind him, Jackson Rathbone is to return as the bad guy in this gentle drama.

The Twilight star produces and co-stars in Girlfriend (written and directed by Justin Lerner) while performing the film's score with his band 100 Monkeys.

Evan Sneider, who worked with Lerner on The Replacement Child, stars as a young man with Down's Syndrome who pursues a local single mother, Shannon Woodward. Rathbone is the volatile ex-boyfriend, with Amanda Plummer co-starring in this hopefully sensitive romantic drama.

Girlfriend is screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it should find a distributor.
