The Sweet East


Get ready for a unique road trip through the American East Coast. High school senior Lillian gets separated from the group during a class trip to Washington D.C. She embarks on her own exploration. To quote the Wizard of Oz: “It’s not about where you go, it’s who you meet along the way.” This certainly applies to this film, in which you’ll be treated to some delightful supporting roles. Starring Talia Ryder (Never Rarely Sometimes Always), Ayo Edebiri (The Bear), Jacob Elordi (Euphoria), and Simon Rex (Red Rocket).
