Clementine is a narrative feature film about a heartbroken woman who becomes entangled with a younger girl after breaking into her ex’s lake house in the Pacific Northwest. Equal parts psychological drama 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 (Crackle’s “Start-up”), Sydney Sweeney (Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, HBO’s “Sharp Objects” and “Euphoria”), Will Brittain (Kong: Skull Island, Everybody Wants Some!!), and Sonya Walger (ABC’s “The Catch” and “Lost”). The filmmaking team is based in Portland, Oregon. Our writer/director, Lara Jean Gallagher, is a graduate of Columbia University’s MFA Directing program and this is her debut feature film.
Sarasota Film Festival is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema.
