Billed as "the most explosive portrait of NYC youth since Kids," Elizabeth Wood's White Girl touches on the cross sections between New York's mean streets and its gentrified alcoves making for a potent social satire.
College girl Leah (Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form, be it drugs or sex and she ain't shy about it. After hitting off with a handsome young Puerto Rican drug dealer, Blue, her life descends into chaos when he is arrested, leaving her with shit loads of coke.
The film stradles between the high tension relationship of hedonism and the blatant disregard for ones well being in the pursuit of leisure while making a raw commentary on today's youth culture in a way that some might find unsettling. We're definitely chalking this one as a must watch.
