"No matter where you go, there you are."


Palm Trees and Power Lines – Watch the trailer for the new drama directed by Jamie Dack

Seventeen-year-old Lea (Lily McInerny) spends her summer break aimlessly tanning in her backyard with her best friend, tiptoeing around her needy mother, and getting stoned with a group of boys from school. This monotony is interrupted by a chance encounter with Tom (Jonathan Tucker), an older man who promises an alternative to Lea’s unsatisfying adolescent life. But as things progress between them, red flags about Tom’s life begin to surface, and Lea chooses to ignore them. Under Tom’s influence, Lea begins to see her mom as unfit and her friends as a waste of her time. Isolated from those around her, Lea discovers Tom’s true intentions and finds herself in a situation that she never could have imagined.

Directed by Jamie Dack, the film stars Lily McInerny, Jonathan Tucker and Gretchen Mol.

Hillary saw the film at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. You can read her review here.

Momentum will release Palm Trees and Power Lines in US cinemas and VOF on 3rd March 2023.
