PUBLIC SPEAKING is a romantic drama about two high school debaters on their way home from a tournament in the 1980s. Alex can arguing about nuclear throw weights as if he worked in the Pentagon, but when it comes to his desire for Nadia, an up-and-coming teammate in awe of his abilities, he’s more likely to express his feelings . . . nonverbally. By the end, they’ve both discovered the power, and the importance, of simply speaking.
