❉ A taut, atmospheric drama starring Sydney Sweeney (The Handmaid’s Tale) & Otmara Marrero (Miss Arizona).
‘Resides willfully (and more often than not, skilfully) in the spaces between loss and desire, anger and reckoning, trust and suspicion, often to unnerving effect…Gallagher spins a yarn, also peeling a story of attraction and power, identity and coming-of-agency’ – Variety
Clementine is the critically acclaimed feature film debut from one-to-watch writer/director Lara Jean Gallagher, who has drawn comparisons to Jane Campion (Slant Magazine). Making waves upon its premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival, this taut, atmospheric drama is now set for its premiere in the UK from Bohemia Media.
Equal parts tense psychological drama and sexual coming-of-age story, CLEMENTINE sees a heartbroken woman become entangled with a younger girl after breaking into her ex’s remote lake house in the Pacific Northwest.
Struggling to come to terms with her devastating break-up from girlfriend D, Karen (Otmara Marrero – Start-up, Vandal, Miss Arizona), drives to a remote cabin in the woods where they spent much of their relationship and, craving the closeness she once had with the love of her life, she breaks in and decides to stay.
When the fresh-faced, care-free Lana (Sydney Sweeney – Euphoria, Sharp Objects, The Handmaid’s Tale), turns up searching for her lost dog, Karen feels like her solitude has been interrupted, but with Lana’s persistence the pair begin to form a closeness.
As the women start to share their innermost secrets and their bond grows stronger, the film builds with a creeping sense of dread…who really is this mystery woman?
Clementine was developed with the support of the Venice Biennale College-Cinema, the Sundance Institute, Film Independent, IFP, and the Tribeca Film Institute.
❉ Clementine is released on digital Monday 8th February 2021 in the UK from Bohemia Media.
