White Girl

Banner 1

Summer, New York City. A college girl falls hard for a guy she just met. After a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back. WHITE GIRL’s provocative story, already being praised as a “Kids” for the millennial generation, is based on the real-life events of director Elizabeth Wood.

“There are so many remarkable things about Saylor’s ferocious lead performance in WHITE GIRL that it’s hard to know where to begin … Vulnerable, invincible, empowered, and pathetic all at once, few actresses have better navigated the difference between being naked and being exposed – and it looks like we ain’t seen nothing yet.” – Rolling Stone

“The film uses the freedoms of a beautiful, white, blonde girl as a commentary on white privilege; that it never slams that message over the heads of its viewers is a testament to its commitment to show, not tell. This is no after-school special, nor is it a celebration of what it means to be 19 and have the world at your fingertips. Call it a coming-of-age story, but only if “coming of age” means realizing the harsh limits of the power afforded to you by your race, gender, or sexuality.” – BuzzFeed

“Shocking and sexy as hell…Seductive and repellent by turns, 
it’s a title that will provoke fierce love-or-hate reactions, but there’s no question it augurs the arrival of a powerful, audacious new directorial talent.”
The Hollywood Reporter

WHITE GIRL is a movie you can’t easily shake off, not even days after you’ve seen it.” 
– Indiewire’s The Playlist

“Terrific performances and a topical plot…a stylish Sundance button-pusher.” 
– The Guardian 

“The most explosive portrait of NYC youth since Kids” – iD x VICE 

“A f**cked-up nightmare dressed as a party.” – Buzzfeed
