In-Person: Director and Advocate for Women in Film, Leah Meyerhoff.
USA | 80 min | NR | DCP | Dir.Leah Meyerhoff
Davina (Natalia Dyer) is an imaginative and strong-willed teenage girl who often escapes into a beautifully twisted fantasy life. Having grown up quickly as the caretaker of her disabled mother (Toni Meyerhoff), she looks for salvation in a relationship with an older boy. Davina is swept into a whirlwind of romance and adventure, but the enchantment of her new relationship fades when Sterling's volatile side begins to emerge. "A truly creative and beautiful piece. Mandatory viewing for teenage girls and those who love them."- Indiewire "The performances are strong, the imaginary visions suggestive, and the film as a whole is swoony, tender, skittish, a little scary — in short, this is what young love feels like. More Meyerhoff, please!"- Village Voice
