(AUSTIN, TX)—The Austin Film Society and Cinema East present IT FELT LIKE LOVE with writer/director Eliza Hittman in attendance, whom Variety recently cited as a “talent to watch”. The film will be presented on Saturday, September 21st at AFS at the Marchesa (6226 Middle Fiskville Rd). The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where it received rave reviews for its originality, artistry and masterful direction by first-time feature director Hittman. This will be the film’s Austin premiere.“One of the most involving and sensually lush debuts in recent memory, and a striking afterimage for all of Sundance.”
– Michael Nordine, Cinema Scope

About IT FELT LIKE LOVE
During an uneventful summer on the outskirts of Brooklyn, Lila, a lonely fourteen-year-old from Gravesend, turns her attentions to Sammy, an older thug she sees at Rockaway beach. Wanting something to brag about, she weaves a story about him and becomes fixated on seeing it realized. When her attempts fail, she propels the lie even further, claiming they’ve had sex. During her sexual quest, Lila turns from predator to prey. It Felt Like Love captures the confusing emotions and developing identity of an adolescent girl that explores what could euphemistically be called love. For more information on IT FELT LIKE LOVE, visit www.itfeltlikelove.com.
