Reeling from a one-sided breakup, anguished Karen (Otmara Marrero) flees Los Angeles for her ex’s idyllic lake house in the Pacific Northwest. There, she becomes entangled with a mysterious, alluring younger woman (Sydney Sweeney), whom she cannot seem to resist. Equal parts psychological thriller and sexual coming-of-age story, CLEMENTINE is a tense rumination on who to love and how to let go.
CLEMENTINE was developed with the support of the Venice Biennale College-Cinema, the Sundance Institute, Film Independent, and IFP. It stars Otmara Marrero (“Start-up”), Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”, “Sharp Objects”, “The Handmaid’s Tale”), Will Brittain (Kong: Skull Island, Everybody Wants Some!!), and Sonya Walger (ABC’s “The Catch” and “Lost”).
Directed by Lara Jean Gallagher.
