In this raw and haunting story, 14-year-old Lila longs for a relationship, as she tags along behind her seductive friend Chiara and her latest boyfriend. Innocent and vulnerable, Lila longs to have a sexual experience of her own and, in doing so, sets herself up for humiliation and heartbreak. Set in working-class Brooklyn, director Eliza Hittman, in her first feature film, deftly captures the emotions and the ambience and of her characters and the location.
