A coming of age story of a young Brooklynite in desperate search of identity.

Teenager Frankie (Harris Dickinson) lives in Brooklyn, takes care of his sick father, hangs out with his delinquent jobless mates, smokes weed, goes clubbing, and video chats with other men. Once he becomes acquainted with Simone (Madeline Weinstein), this meeting makes Frankie face a choice of which direction to take in life.

Director Eliza Hittman who made her debut with the drama It Felt Like Love four years ago, continues to explore the theme of teenage sexuality. Beach Rats is balancing act between showing sensuousness and deliberate masculinity while telling the story of a Brooklyn born young male who is struggling to “feel” because of fear of any emotional experience.

In 2017, the film won awards at the Sundance and Outfest festivals, as well as the Boston and the Montclair festivals. It has been screened in Locarno, London, Busan, and a few dozen other film forums.
