Set on a quiet tree-lined street in Brooklyn, The Unspeakable Act is an acclaimed, darkly funny film about a young girl's unusual coming of age. Jackie Kimball is a normal 17-year-old girl - except that for as long as she can remember, she's been in love with her older brother Matthew. The two siblings rely on each other for friendship and support, but Matthew doesn't share his sister's feelings. When Matthew departs for college, Jackie sets out to meet other boys, and for the first time, must contend with life on her own.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [It] is about the familiar more than it is about the forbidden.
Fresh: Sensitive subject-matter is handled with tact and intelligence in this tart if talky US indie.
Fresh: Writer-director Dan Sallitt's fourth feature moves with confident boldness from the incestuous gauntlet its prologue impishly hurls down.
