About the Movie

In this unflinchingly honest and refreshingly unsentimental coming-of-age story, 14-year-old Lila spends a languid South Brooklyn summer playing third wheel to her promiscuous friend Chiara and Chiara’s boyfriend Patrick. Eager for her own sexual awakening, Lila gamely decides to pursue the older, thuggish Sammy, rumored to sleep with anyone. But as Lila’s overt advances unmask her inexperience and quiet desperation, she’s quickly pushed into frightening and unwelcome new territory.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A mood poem to summer loving and sexual awakening, "It Felt Like Love" powerfully evokes a time when flesh is paramount, and peer behavior is the standard by which we judge our own. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Mar 20, 2014

Fresh: An evocatively shot, rawly unsentimental coming-of-ager from debut helmer Eliza Hittman. – Alissa Simon, Variety, Jan 22, 2013

Fresh: Rarely has the zone between girlhood and womanhood been captured with such urgent honesty than in Eliza Hittman's superb teen drama "It Felt Like Love." – Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times, Mar 27, 2014

Rotten: The filmmaker has fallen for some of indiedom's worst cliches, including our main character's sad stare out to the ocean, and soft camerawork that's beginning to sound like a Klaxon: Hug me, hug me, hug me. – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out, Mar 18, 2014

Looks good. Should give a try.


A quiet, but powerful, visually evocative film about how confusing hormonal lust is.


I waited....nothing.
