Description

"Like an evocative short story, Clementine distills its themes." —Variety

"The prismatic narrative from writer/director Lara Gallagher splinters the lines between wishes, dreams, lies and manipulation." —RogerEbert.com

"Gallagher is a talented director who coaxes great work from her collaborators and knows how to use rhythm and suggestion to sustain a mood." —Minneapolis Star Tribute

In this moody and mysterious feature, a scenic lake house becomes a sanctuary for two young women. Karen (Otmara Marrero) is just out of a long-term relationship and needing a place to stay, so she sneaks into her ex's summer home. There she meets the precocious Lana (Sydney Sweeney), whose bold charisma is a welcome distraction. Both Karen and Lana are emotionally guarded, but their cautious flirtation gives them both a sense of validation.
