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.
“Writer-director Lara Jean Gallagher’s Clementine resides willfully (and more often than not, skillfully) in the spaces between loss and desire, anger and reckoning, trust and suspicion, often to unnerving effect.” – Lisa Kennedy, Variety
“In her directorial debut, Gallagher absolutely shines.” – Debbie Holloway, Narrative Muse
“A portrait of the often-shifting relationship between female friends that is so rarely conveyed honestly in film.” – Erica Ciccarone, Nashville Scene
