Movie Info

A comedy about Allie and Harper and their needlessly difficult journey to the beach. Fort Tilden: New York City's secluded seaside nirvana where, like flies to honey, Brooklyn's hip millennial set flocks on sweltering weekend afternoons for unbridled summertime indulgence. Amidst the vexing stagnation of quarter-life crises, Allie (Clare McNulty) struggles to prepare for the Peace Corps, while Harper (Bridey Elliot) awaits checks from her father to fund her artistic dreams. But the two friends quickly shun responsibilities for the day when a pair of good-looking guys invites them along for a carefree Fort Tilden afternoon. As the two young women board their fixed-gear bicycles and embark on a lengthy journey to the beach, they quickly realize that, akin to their confusing, transitioning lives, they neither know where they're going nor how they plan to get there. The debut feature film of directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers - and showcasing the comedic versatility of Clare McNulty and Bridey Elliott as Allie and Harper - "Fort Tilden" is a hilariously insightful and recognizable look at the consequences of extended adolescence.(c) Official site

Tucked in among the longueurs are moments of savage satirical virtuosity that pinion the zeitgeist.

A story with a distinctive New York sensibility, filled with all kinds of strange urban creatures who are variously self-involved, superficial, rude and/or downright nasty.

With "Fort Tilden," writer-directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers have created two women who are drawn so vividly and so viciously, they're hard to dismiss.

August 14, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

"Fort Tilden" is cringe-worthy but true. Maybe that's why it's so uncomfortable to watch.

Rarely has a movie so humorously illustrated the meaning of "frenemy."
