Hearts Beats Loud 2018
Hearts Beat Loud is a love story about a father and a daughter (played by Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons) as they come of age in the summer before the daughter leaves for college. But love -- familial, romantic, friendly -- is abundant in the film: Dad and kid, single parent and single parent, man and barkeep.
Then there's young love -- blushing, effervescent, new love, the kind that can only happen as a teenager, the sort of love looked back on wistfully later in life -- between UCLA-bound pre-med student Sam (Clemons) and artist Rose (Sasha Lane), who meet eyes across an art gallery, nervous giggles leading to flirtatious banter. It's a sweet summer romance. It's also the rare onscreen relationship between two queer women of color.
