Opens in NYC + LA on July 29, and in theaters everywhere on August 5. watch the trailer below.
The film follows, Sarah Jo is a sensitive and naive 26-year-old living on the fringes of Hollywood with her disillusioned mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and influencer sister (Taylour Paige). Working as a caregiver and just longing to be seen, she begins an exploratory affair with her older, married employer, and is thrust into a startling education on sexuality, loss, and power.
According to Variety review, “’Sharp Stick,’ in its quick verbal exchanges, its naked sexuality, its general air of busting taboos as if they were oversize balloons, is recognizably a Lena Dunham movie. But it’s the first one of her projects in which the parts don’t quite add up, because it seems as if what we’re watching hasn’t been so much created as contrived.”
‘Sharp Stick’ starts streaming on Aug. 16.
