(Eliza Hittman, 2013, USA, DCP, 82 min.)

In director Eliza Hittman’s debut feature, newcomer Gina Piersanti gives a striking and nuanced performance as lonely fourteen-year-old Lila whose confused longings for love, romance, acceptance, adventure lead her dangerously astray. She fixates on Sammy, an older boy, and is soon drawn into a world she’s not prepared for. Hittman’s sensitivity to the awkwardness, humiliations, and colliding feelings of adolescence gives her coming-of-age story a powerful and honest edge. It Felt Like Love has a slow-burning momentum that makes it one of the most involving and sensually lush debuts in recent memory.”­Cinemascope
