Cohasset Higher graduate Kate Bosworth (Class of 2001) plays the stepmother to a shy teenager trying to come out of her shell in the teen romance “Along for the Ride.”
The film is based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Dessen and will premiere on Netflix on May 6.
Set in the seaside town of Colby, the story follows Auden (Emma Pasarow) during her last summer before college. What was supposed to be a few quiet weeks with her father (Dermot Mulroney) and his new wife (Bosworth) turns into the adventure of a lifetime for Auden. For better or worse, a mysterious boy (Belmont Cameil) shows Auden everything she missed while in high school. Andie MacDowell also co-stars.
Bosworth moved to Cohasset when he was 14. At Cohasset High she played football and lacrosse and was a member of the National Honor Society. In 2013, she donated a 50ft red carpet to the school for its annual pre-prom gala on Cohasset Common.
