Have you seen the White Girl trailer? Making its debut at Sundance, the film is getting rave reviews by heavy-hitting critics such as Rolling Stone, IndieWire and more. i-D Vice is calling it “‘the most explosive portrait of NYC youth since Kids.'”
Elizabeth Wood makes her directorial debut in this coming-of-age, college girl story based on her own sophomore year experiences. White Girl takes you down the rabbit hole of life’s racial, economic and sexual power struggles. It forces you to stare immorality, dependency and self-determination in the face. What daring soul takes on the task of portraying this lead role? Morgan Saylor. You may remember Morgan as the annoyingly emo daughter of Nicholas Brody in Homeland. Taking her far from the role of Dana Brody, White Girl exposes Morgan’s talent in a raw and riveting way; a bold move, and breakout opportunity for the young actress.
If you’re looking to rattle your senses, this White Girl might be right up your alley. The film comes out Friday, September 2nd in limited release. Support your local indie/historic theaters and go see it. Check out the official trailer here:
