Beach Rats (15)


A Brooklyn teenager spends his days experimenting with drugs and looking online for older men to meet with.

The critical consensus

Harris Dickinson impresses as a teen struggling to accept his true sexuality in Eliza Hittman's sophomore drama.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 20/11/2017

A film that makes you feel for a guy with no feelings.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 21/11/2017

Dickinson excels as the deeply conflicted Frankie, a charismatic and likeable but increasingly torn and neurotic figure whose self-deception has tragic consequences.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 22/11/2017

Powered by a taciturn, soulful performance by its young star, this meditation on fear, shame and sexual repression packs a wallop.

****(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 23/11/2017

Surprisingly conventional.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 23/11/2017

A grainy, moody drama unfolding over a Brooklyn summer.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 24/11/2017

British newcomer Harris Dickinson convinces as a Brooklyn delinquent who lusts after older men in Eliza Hittman’s superb second film.
