Fort Tilden 2014

Twenty-something Brooklynites Allie and Harper are directionless, privileged, and just a tiny bit damaged. All they want is to get to the beach, where a drug-fueled afternoon with cute boys awaits them. Alas, the journey becomes needlessly complicated, as the girls’ bike ride from Williamsburg to Fort Tilden Beach is littered with a barrage of unfriendly circumstances and the realization that their life skills are more limited than they should be.

I've seen people hound down this film, trying to say it's a hipster collage. That is untrue; this film is really a quite detailed, funny and critical view of the today of near-teenaged, white, monied persons who are lost in solipsism while being...spoiled brats, would actually be a good generalisation. The two headliners try to get to Fort Tilden by bike, which isn't as easy as it sounds (to them). This is like "The Warriors" without the physical violence. As they make their way they find stuff out about themselves while seemingly learning nothing. It's an epic film, in the true sense of the word. I've also gotta say, the scene where one of the lead characters picks up David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" and drops it onto a visible part of her apartment to increase her chance of getting laid later as she hopes to drag a guy back to her apartment is brilliant to a DFW geek like myself.
