The UK trailer and poster for Eliza Hittman’s award-winning Beach Rats have been released.

Beach Rats stars newcomer Harris Dickinson as Frankie, a troubled teen cogitating his sexual identity. His performance in the film has been hailed as a break out performance by a number of early reviews for the movie.


Frankie, an aimless teenager on the outer edges of Brooklyn, is having a miserable summer. With his father dying and his mother wanting him to find a girlfriend, Frankie escapes the bleakness of his home life by causing trouble with his delinquent friends and flirting with older men online.
