NYC college girl Leah (Homeland’s Morgan Saylor) is spending her summer
seeking out pleasure in any form. Between getting high with her roommate
and snorting lines with her boss, Leah falls for Blue (Brian Marc), a
young man dealing drugs on her corner. Within days, the two are selling
dime bags to her boss and his downtown friends, and living the high
life. Summer love crashes to a halt though when Blue is arrested and
Leah is left with a large bag of his coke. Enlisting the help of an
overpriced lawyer (Chris Noth), Leah finds herself deep in debt as she
crosses all boundaries to get Blue back. Deliriously filmed in and
around New York City, WHITE GIRL thrashes through an increasingly
high-stakes game of hedonism.
The most controversial film at the 2016
Sundance Film Festival, WHITE GIRL is an incendiary exploration of race,
gender and youth, inspired by first time writer-director Elizabeth
Wood’s own experiences.
