Eliza Hittman’s sophomore feature Beach Rats is a unique exploration into the confusion, and shame that surrounds male sexuality. Harris Dickinson plays Frankie, a teenager living in South Brooklyn’s working-class coastal communities. His performance is filled with a kind of tangible anxiety, so electric that you can feel it through the screen. The peaceful exhilaration he feels in front.Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Beach Rats (DVD) at Amazon.com.

I don’t really know what I like” is a recurring line spoken by closeted 19-year-old Frankie, the protagonist of Eliza Hittman’s Beach Rats, and while the words are a shield of armor the boy wears, they also speak a truth greater than he probably even knows.

Beach Rats is a cold film. That’s not to say it fails to bring heart and humour because it is quite clear director Eliza Hittman hasn’t set out to achieve this. The pulsing lights, club beats and bright fireworks deaden the senses as the gang move purposefully through the crowds, scavenging for any freebies that will give them a good time, and the endless plumes of smoke that swirl around.
Directed by Eliza Hittman. With Harris Dickinson, Madeline Weinstein, Kate Hodge, Neal Huff. A Brooklyn teenager spends his days experimenting with drugs and looking online for older men to meet with.
AB-SOLUTION - My Review of BEACH RATS (3 Stars) If you're gonna do a movie about a young, gay man struggling with the closet, you had better bring something new to the table or else risk a DTD.
Beach Rats stands on its own merits as one of the boldest, most original films of the year. It does that incredible thing of making you miss it before it's even over, like fireworks that turn to smoke before you're ready. Read full review.
Call it Bro Travail. Beach Rats, Eliza Hittman’s eroticized study of young male bodies and repressed sexuality along the arcades of Coney Island, owes a sizable debt to the films of Claire Denis (particularly a certain desert-set Herman Melville adaption), going so far as to copy the extraordinary French director’s cryptic fragmentation of close-ups and eye lines. On a conceptual level, it.
Writer-director Eliza Hittman made a splash on the festival circuit in 2013 with It Felt Like Love, an intimate portrait of a 14-year-old girl’s rush into sexual discovery.Her follow-up feature, Beach Rats, similarly deals with the sexual awakening of a teen, albeit with key differences. The first is that the protagonist, Frankie (Dickinson, a Brit newcomer with a convincing Brooklyn accent.
Think of a much greater, deeper movie like Moonlight, so similar to Beach Rats in many respects, in which something, at the end, redemptive happens, both by an effort of the main character's own will and need and by another's love. The terrible hardness of life need not be its only meaning, need not be all of life. Or consider one of the best gay-themed films ever made, with apologies to it.
With respect to It Felt Like Love, Beach Rats represents a leap forward in terms of craft and narrative maturity, and also a companion piece in its dreamy, tone-poem feel, and its keen eye and ear.
