Summer of Sangaile
Who remembers being seventeen? The angst, the despair, the ecstasy and the sublime, all boiling in a sea of hormones and insecurities. Sangaile is seventeen and locked away in her fear, shame and rebellion, miserably vacationing with her parents at their modern lake house. The summer is long and introspective until she meets Auste, who is beautiful, transparent and completely smitten with the brooding Sangaile. Their romance simmers and then burns through the final days of growing up. Award-winning Lithuanian filmmaker, Alante Kevaite captures the smoldering, encompassing grip of adolescent emotions with gorgeous scenery and captivating performances by Julija Steponaityte and Aiste Dirziute that make for a hypnotic film beyond the simple premise of young love.
