Beach Rats — Trailer


added: Fri, Jul 21st '17

At this year's Sundance Film Festival, writer-director Eliza Hittman (It Felt Like Love) took home a Directing Award for "Beach Rats," the visually atmospheric gay-teen drama starring newcomer Harris Dickinson as a tank-top-wearing Brooklyn hoodlum exploring his sexuality and his secret relationships with older men over the course of a fateful summer.

The film has been praised for its dream-like quality and Hittman's visual choices that appear to be influenced by classic European films. And since premiering at Sundance, the movie has been generating strong word-of-mouth.

"Beach Rats" co-stars Madeline Weinstein and Kate Hodge and will be opening in select theaters on August 25th.

An aimless teenager on the outer edges of Brooklyn struggles to escape his bleak home life and navigate questions of self-identity, as he balances his time between his delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online.
