Synopsis

Sarah Jo is a naive 26-year-old living on the fringes of Hollywood with her mother (longing for money) and sister (longing for exposure.) She just longs to be seen. When she begins an affair with her older employer, she is thrust into an education on sexuality, loss, and power.

Our take

Girls creator Lena Dunham returns for her first film as writer-director since Tiny Furniture with this provocative tale of sexual awakening. With stellar performances from Kristine Froseth and Jon Bernthal, Sharp Stick is a darkly comic exploration of desire, autonomy, and arrested development.
