The most highly anticipated indie film of the year, see’s the return of director Jane Schoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) in a VHS drenched odyssey.

With their second feature, Jane Schoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) creates a cryptic, horror-tinged mood piece that’s bound to inspire myriad interpretations and a devoted cult following. A singular portrait of adolescent loneliness, gender dysphoria, parasocial relationships and social media fixation, I Saw the TV Glow confirms that Schoenbrun is a serious talent. Fans of David Lynch, Gregg Araki and Richard Kelly will revel in this cinematic exploration of the teenage psyche. Striking imagery drifts atop an appropriately dreamy soundtrack featuring Caroline Polachek and Phoebe Bridgers and an original score by Alex G (as well as a supporting role for Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst).
