21st Century Cinema
Directed by David Gordon Green • 2000 • United States

An ambitiously constructed, elegantly photographed meditation on adolescence, the first full-length film by director David Gordon Green features remarkable performances from an award-winning ensemble cast. GEORGE WASHINGTON is a startling and distinct work of contemporary American independent cinema.
