A comedy about Allie and Harper and their needlessly difficult journey to the beach.
Fort Tilden: New York Citys secluded seaside nirvana where, like flies to honey, Brooklyns 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 Elliott) 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 theyre going nor how they plan to get there.
The debut feature film of directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogersand showcasing the comedic versatility of McNulty and ElliottFORT TILDEN is a hilariously insightful and recognizable look at the consequences of extended adolescence.
