An auction featuring Girlfriend movie items will be available to help support the Spencer Bell Endowment Fund which is where the Draper Philanthropy’s Project donations are given. We are featuring this auction to further promote efforts towards adrenal cancer research which is what the Spencer Bell Endowment Fund is directly geared towards.
To give you an overview of Girlfriend, Evan is a young man with Down’s Syndrome who lives with his mother in a poor, working-class town hit hard by the recent economic recession. When he unexpectedly comes into a large amount of money, Evan uses it to romantically pursue Candy, a girl from town whom he has loved since high school.
Candy, now a barely-employed single mom, is facing financial debt, possible eviction, and the inability to rid herself of Russ, her abusive and volatile ex-boyfriend. In no position to turn down Evan’s offers of financial support, Candy hesitantly accepts his gifts, which causes the pair to enter a complicated emotional entanglement.
When Russ catches on to Candy and Evan’s relationship, all three of them become intertwined in a complex triangle of secrets, jealousy and revenge. Despite his many hardships and the seeming impossibility of Candy being able to return his love, Evan struggles to remain a resilient, pure embodiment of human compassion.
