Film Review: Beach Rats

Reviewed By Linda Marric

Despite it being only her second feature, it’s easy to see why It Felt Like Love director Eliza Hittman’s newest offering Beach Rats is being talked about in the same breath as Barry Jenkins’ brilliant 2016 multi-award winning film Moonlight. With its understated mood, poetic tone and truly astounding performances, the film not only offers an honest non-judgemental portrayal of youthful bravado and coming of age, but is also a daringly gripping story of sexual awakening and coming to terms with one’s own nature.
