Beach Rats

Opens Oct 6, 2017

On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie (Harris Dickinson), an aimless teenager, begins to scour hookup sites for older men 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. Directed by Eliza Hittman (It Felt Like Love).

"Hittman's depictions of sexuality, emotional crisis, and parent-teen relationships are rendered here without sentimentality — and with the burning urgency of a stick of dynamite with a lit fuse." (April Wolfe, Village Voice)
