Expressing grievances about their way of life to their parents is a typical experience for many young teenagers who have their process of maturing. That’s certainly the case for actress Charlotte Salisbury’s protagonist, Bea, in the new romantic drama, ‘Porcupine Lake.’ In honor of Breaking Glass Pictures distributing the female-centric coming-of-age film on DVD and VOD this Tuesday, August 14, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip from the movie.
The drama’s official release comes after it had its premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. It was then an official selection at last year’s Seattle Twist International Film Festival, Newfest and St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival.
In addition to Salisbury and Bolton, ‘Porcupine Lake’ also stars Lucinda Armstrong Hall, Delphine Roussel, Hallie Switzer and Harrison Tanner. The movie was written and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Ingrid Veninger.
Breaking Glass Pictures has released the following synopsis for ‘Porcupine Lake’:
Two 13-year-old girls meet up early summer in Port Severn, a small town in Ontario, and become more than best friends. They share personal secrets, fears, grievances and daredevil challenges. By the end of the summer, Bea and Kate (Salisbury and Hall) have irrevocably influenced each other, and the course of their lives have changed in ways they can’t yet foresee. Inventive and daring, Veninger explores the vulnerability of being thirteen with insight and humor. Through an intimate and authentic portrait of Bea’s awakening into selfhood, this story invites us to imagine a new model for a young girl’s first love story — one told from the inside out.
