Two new clips debuted today for the upcoming film WHITE GIRL, which hits New York and LA theaters today; and nationwide on September 16, 2016. WHITE GIRL is a provocative portrayal of New York City youth that delves into issues of gender, race, sexuality, and white privilege. The harrowing film is the debut feature from exciting young writer/director Elizabeth Wood.
The film stars Morgan Saylor (Homeland), Brian “Sene” Marc (Nerve, Luke Cage), Chris Noth (Sex and the City, The Good Wife), Justin Bartha (The Hangover, Holy Rollers), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton and India Salvor Menuez (Transparent).
Equipped with platinum blond hair and a winning smile, NYC college girl Leah (Homeland’s Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form. Between getting high with her roommate and snorting lines with her boss, Leah falls for Blue (Brian Marc), a young man dealing drugs on her corner. Within days, the two are selling dime bags to her boss (Justin Bartha) and his downtown friends and living the high life. Summer love crashes to a halt when Blue is arrested and Leah is left with a serious bag of his coke. Enlisting the help of an overpriced lawyer (Chris Noth), Leah finds herself deep in debt as she crosses all boundaries to get Blue back. Deliriously filmed in and around New York City, WHITE GIRL thrashes through an increasingly high-stakes game of hedonism. The most controversial film at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, WHITE GIRL is an incendiary exploration of race, gender and youth, inspired by first time writer-director Elizabeth Wood’s own experiences.
