Beach Rats Teaser Trailer

Brand new distribution company Neon has debuted a teaser trailer for the film Beach Rats, the second feature from filmmaker Eliza Hittman, following up her debut It Felt Like Love. This film just premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January, where it won the Best Director award. Newcomer Harris Dickinson plays Frankie, an aimless youth on the outer edges of Brooklyn, struggling to escape his bleak home life. He spends his summer balancing time between his delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. The cast includes Nicole Flyus, Frank Hakaj, Kate Hodge and Neal Huff. I'm not fond of this teaser - doesn't tell me enough about the film or why I should be interested in it.

Here's the first official teaser trailer for Eliza Hittman's Beach Rats, direct from Neon's YouTube:

An aimless teenager (Harris Dickinson) on the outer edges of Brooklyn struggles to escape his bleak home life and navigate questions of self-identity, as he balances his time between his delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. Beach Rats is written and directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Eliza Hittman, of the film It Felt Like Love and a number of short films previously. The film just premiered in-competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. Neon will release Hittman's Beach Rats in select theaters starting later in the fall. Stay tuned for an actual date.

Classic ambiguous teaser trailer nonsense.

Either that or we are getting old. But, in fact, I think you might be just right ...

It's the music what I found interesting. Reminds me of something from the 'Drive' ...

Dug the music...the imagery...doesn't really tell me much. This reminds me of a Harmony Korine vibe...which...not for me.

So inspired by Harmony Korine's "Kids" and "Bully". Im trying to look up if there's any link between the two film makers, or if she was inspired by Korine's work. It's clear to me they're really simular, not only the film making but the story and raw acting etc.
