“Dark, dreamy, and entirely engrossing” –David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
“Beautifully rendered study of repressed sexuality” –Guy Lodge, Variety
On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable consequences.Eliza Hittman’s award-winning Sundance hit is a powerful character study that is as visually stunning as it is evocative. A Neon Release; in select theaters August 25th.
