Piersanti and Hittman Talk IT FELT LIKE LOVE
September 12, 2014 by Mike McNamara
IT FELT LIKE LOVE offers a stunning debut from newcomer Gina Piersanti and an auspicious debut from director Eliza Hittman. SCREEN's Mike McNamara caught up with the duo for this week's Filmmaker Focus. IT FELT LIKE LOVE tells the story of Lila, a fourteen year old spending a hot summer in a blue-collar Brooklyn neighborhood far removed from the bustling city. Awkward, lonely, and often playing the third wheel, Lila is determined to emulate the sexual exploits of her more experienced best friend. She fixates on Sammy, a tough older guy, when she hears that "he'll sleep with anyone." Deluded in her romantic pursuit, Lila tries desperately to insert herself into Sammy's gritty world, but in doing so she puts herself into a dangerously vulnerable situation.
