This year was a good one for LGBT movies at Sundance, with the likes of Call Me By Your Name, God’s Own Country and Beach Rats making waves. A new trailer for the last of those films has now arrived, which you can take a look at below.
Beach Rats also won Best Director – US Features for Eliza Hittman at Sundance.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach 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. Eliza Hittman’s award-winning Sundance hit is a powerful character study that is as visually stunning as it is evocative.’
Beach Rats is will be in US cinemas from August 25th, and should arrive in the UK in November. [Read more…]
