“Beach Rats” is a tale of the dawn of a young gay man’s self-awareness

“Beach Rats” is a tale of the dawn of a young gay man’s self-awareness | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

Although many critics have called “Beach Rats” a coming-of-age tale, Eliza Hittman’s atmospheric verité drama about a gay Brooklyn teenager struggling to accept his homosexuality doesn’t actually come to much of anything, let alone the incipient wisdom, knowledge or — at a bare minimum — understanding that usually accompany such journeys. Rather, this very thinly sliced character study of beautiful if benighted adolescence is more a pre-coming-of-age tale, one that takes us close to, but not through, the transformative acquisition of good judgment... It ends, in other words, not in a state of enlightenment, but in sheer panic.
