Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Eliza Hittman. 2017, 98 mins. DCP. With Harris Dickinson, Madeline Weinstein, Kate Hodge. In the far reaches of south Brooklyn, Frankie (newcomer Dickinson), an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a group of carousing friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie starts a relationship with a young woman while simultaneously chatting with older men online, which soon leads to furtive hookups at a nearby cruising beach. Winner of the Sundance Jury Prize in Directing, Eliza Hittman’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed It Felt Like Love is a wise and minutely observed character study, as well as an intoxicating and tactile admixture of picture and sound.
