"Have we met before?" Logan Lerman's Sidney asks the enigmatic new girl across the street in this exclusive first clip from The Vanishing of Sidney Hall.
"In the first grade. You gave me a Valentine's Day card on the wrong day," Melody (played by Elle Fanning) explains. "Then on the actual Valentine's Day, you kissed me. And I told on you. And I would have kissed you back the next day, but we moved."
The Vanishing of Sidney Hall, from director Shawn Christensen (of the Oscar-winning short, Curfew), is about more than childhood sweethearts, though, as it also deals with a tragic death, a detective (Kyle Chandler) investigating a string of arsons and, of course, the titular vanishing.
