It Felt Like Love
Directed by Eliza Hittman
It Felt Like Love
In this unflinchingly honest and refreshingly unsentimental coming-of-age story, 14-year-old Lila (Gina Piersanti, in a remarkable debut) spends a languid South Brooklyn summer playing third wheel to her promiscuous friend Chiara and Chiara's boyfriend Patrick. Eager for her own sexual awakening, Lila gamely decides to pursue the older, thuggish Sammy, rumored to sleep with anyone. But as Lila's overt advances unmask her inexperience and quiet desperation, she is quickly pushed into frightening and unwelcome new territory.
"CRITICS' PICK: Insightful... a mood poem to summer love and sexual awakening."- The New York Times
"RECOMMENDED: At once delicate and scarily candid... atmospheric and almost painfully observant."- NPR
