Teaser Trailer: Sundance Smash “Beach Rats”

Snatched up by new distributor Neon following a rousing reception at Sundance, Eliza Hittman’s award-winning “Beach Rats” has already unveiled its first teaser trailer.

Set over the course of a Summer, Harris Dickinson plays an aimless youth on the outer edges of Brooklyn, struggling to escape his bleak home life and navigating questions of self-identity – he balances time between delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online.

As his competing desires begin to consume him, his decisions leave him hurtling towards irreparable consequences. Madeline Weinstein and Kate Hodge co-star in the film which opens in cinemas this Fall.
