Eliza Hittman’s powerful debut feature tells the story of Lila (Gina Piersanti, in a stunning debut), a 14 year old spending a hot summer in a blue-collar Brooklyn neighborhood far removed from the bustling city. Awkward, lonely, and often playing the third wheel, Lila is determined to emulate the sexual exploits of her more experienced best friend. She fixates on Sammy, a tough older guy, when she hears that “he’ll sleep with anyone.” Deluded in her romantic pursuit, she tries desperately to insert herself into Sammy’s gritty world but soon finds herself in a dangerously vulnerable situation. 2013, US, 82 minutes.
