Beach Rats

A film by Eliza Hittman. In eng­lish with ger­man subtitles.

Frankie, an aim­less teen­ager living on the outer edges of Brooklyn, is having a trou­ble­so­me sum­mer. With his father dying and his mother wan­ting him to find a girl­friend, he tri­es to escape the bleak­ness of his home life by causing trou­ble with his delin­quent friends and flir­ting with older men online. When his chat­ting and web­camming inten­si­fy, he final­ly starts hoo­king up with guys 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.
