Beach Rats

Winning the prestigious U.S. Dramatic Directing Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, writer-director Eliza Hittman explores the fine line between machismo and homoeroticism.


Described as a "poetic exploration of youthful desire," Beach Rats sees Frankie (Harris Dickinson) torn between hyper-masculinity, his new girlfriend and the hidden homoeroticism of flirting with older men online. In a star-making turn, Dickinson plays Frankie as an intensely cool yet impenetrable, lonely, young man. The film captures teenage wistfulness and the beauty of a Brooklyn summer, which could give at any moment. Imbued with a shifting mood that is as pensive as it is hot-blooded, this is a transcendent coming-of-age film rarely seen before.
