Stranger Says:

Eliza Hittman captures the dead-end grit and chintz of South Brooklyn while channeling a more mundane borough variation on Beau Travail’s ritualized male deportment and redirected gaze. Notionally a film about boys idling a summer away—getting high, hooking up, and playing handball—the film is anything but idle in its restless portrayal of one particular beach rat’s personal crisis, a coming-of-consciousness tale in which the doe-faced but sinewy Frankie (star-in-the-making Harris Dickinson) can’t escape his increasing attraction to other men while maintaining a facade of heteronormativity. Bold work.
