The equally harrowing and liberating journey of coming-of-age in a gritty urban environment is a powerful process for anyone, no matter how experienced they have become. That reality is enthralling showcased in ‘White Girl,’ the feature film debut from writer-helmer Elizabeth Wood.

The movie offers a chilling look at the modern youth living in New York City today. Set in the summer, the drama follows a college girl as he falls hard for a guy she just met. But when a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back.

‘White Girl’ stars Morgan Saylor, Brian Marc, Justin Bartha, Adrian Martinez, India Salvor Menuez, Anthony Ramos, Ralph Rodriguez, Annabelle Dexter Jones and Chris Noth. The film was produced by Gabriel Nussbaum, co-produced by Matthew Achterberg and executive produced by Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman, Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa. The Bank Street Films and Supermarché production will be distributed by FilmRise in early September.
