Beach Rats

Teenager Frankie (Harris Dickinson) hangs around with his buddies in Brooklyn and meets a cute girl (Madeline Weinstein)ā€¦ but he also spends his nights looking online to hook up with older men. A portrait of a closeted young life that has the feel of authenticity. Dickinson is good as the handsome teen whose life isnā€™t really going anywhere at the moment; as heā€™s struggling to make things work with his girlfriend, heā€™s also exploring the possibilities of a new life, but the strain of it all (his father is also dying) is crushing. Low-key and uneven, this drama never shakes off predictability but is still a relevant look at one part of gay life.

2017-U.S. 98 min. Color. Written and directed byĀ Eliza Hittman. Cast: Harris Dickinson (Frankie), Madeline Weinstein (Simone), Kate Hodge (Donna), Erik Potempa, Anton Selyaninov, Frank Hakaj.
