Full film details

Coney Island, Brooklyn. Frankie (Harris Dickinson) has a lot on his mind, perhaps more so than your average teenager. His father is terminally ill, while his mother is constantly questioning his whereabouts and is suspicious of his actions.

He spends much of his time hanging out on the boardwalk with his delinquent buddies, each one desperate to prove their masculinity, whether that be excessive drug taking or thrashing up the highest score on the arcade punch bag.

When Frankie meets a pretty young girl named Simone (Madeline Weinstein), they immediately bond and their relationship becomes intimate. But, for Frankie, there’s just something missing, and before long he’s sneaking out to the beach late at night to hook up with older men.

Directed by Eliza Hittman, Beach Rats has spent much of 2017 picking up awards at film festivals across the globe (including Sundance) and marks the big screen debut for British actor Harris Dickinson (Silent Witness).

It has received praise for both its performances and tone, which approaches teenage sexuality in a refreshing manner that avoids clichés.

‘’A captivating character study… Stunning’’ The Guardian

‘’An astonishing debut by Harris Dickinson’’ – Indiewire
