Starring Jessie Pinnick, Rebecca Spence, Malic White
This luminous coming-of-age journey follows sixteen-year-old athlete Cyd (Jessie Pinnick) as she heads to Chicago to spend a languorous summer with her novelist aunt (Rebecca Spence). Eager to escape life with her depressive single father, the brash, self-confident Cyd quickly strikes up a relationship with the androgynous Katie (Malic White), while she and her aunt gently challenge each other in the realms of sex and spirit. Drawing richly naturalistic performances from his female-led cast, director Stephen Cone crafts an uncommonly wise and tender portrait of a young woman in the chrysalis-stage process of becoming herself.
