It Felt Like Love

Cast
Lila Gina Piersanti

Crew
Directed by Eliza Hittman


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.

Reviews

"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

"[Hittman's] command over everything - performance, style, tone, imagery - announces her as a noteworthy new filmmaker." - Paste Magazine

"It Felt Like Love," marks the arrival of a new crop of talent to watch, behind the camera and in front. " - Katie Walsh, The Playlist

"Hittman's a talent to watch." - Alissa Simon, Variety
