Fort Tilden


Twenty-something Brooklynites Allie and Harper are directionless, privileged, and just a tiny bit damaged. All they want is to get to the beach, where a drug-fueled afternoon with cute boys awaits them. Alas, the journey becomes needlessly complicated, as the girls’ bike ride from Williamsburg to Fort Tilden Beach is littered with a barrage of unfriendly circumstances and the realization that their life skills are more limited than they should be.

    For all its exquisite theater-of-cruelty viciousness, Fort Tilden is finally a work of empathy about people whose own supplies are running on empty.

    It elegantly evolves from an absurdist comedy into a remarkably wounded and uprooted story of friends who're beginning to tire of their shared social cocoons.

    Rarely has a movie so humorously illustrated the meaning of “frenemy.”

  • Katie Walsh

    Fort Tilden is cringe-worthy but true. Maybe that's why it's so uncomfortable to watch.

    Whether or not we’d like to admit it – they’re willing to say what the rest of us are thinking when they tactlessly open their mouths without a filter. Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    Comparisons to HBO's "Girls" will abound, but Fort Tilden has a more satirical bent than Lena Dunham's much-talked-about show.

  • Sara Stewart

    They’re the ditziest, most solipsistic protagonists I’ve seen outside of a Neil LaBute project.

    New York Post Full Review
  • William Goss

    What really sells both the fashionable remove and generational paralysis is the pairing of Elliott and McNulty, as they effortlessly establish a passive-aggressive relationship from the get-go that thrives in a constant state of reliably unreliable codependence.

    Allie and Harper are basically unlikable, but played with a light touch and just enough distance from their own unthinking cruelty to remain funny.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The movie is broad and mean and for a while very funny, but even when it goes sour — when the world slaps them in the face for their sins — it doesn’t lose its momentum.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Fort Tilden, the debut feature co-written and directed by Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, showcases a satirical voice so dyspeptic it’s almost endearing, never letting the abrasive lead characters – or anyone else for that matter – off the hook for their self-absorbed entitlement.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    While frequently very funny and sustained by a pair of boldly unlikable female protagonists, Fort Tilden adopts the glorious stupidity of its stars, and echoes their gratingly obnoxious temperaments.

    The film confidently switches gears into a moving character study of how life passes by while you’re busy looking like you don’t care. More interesting than the growing fissures in their friendship are the increasingly ruinous consequences of thoughtlessness as a way of life.

  • Nathalie Atkinson

    Real insecurities live deep beneath the frenemies’ cringe-worthy obliviousness, though all credit to the filmmakers for allowing their comeuppance to contain none of the empathy the girls deny everyone else.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Its potent sense of place and underlying ideas never compensate for the tiresome millennial musings that constitute most of its runtime.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s like “Girls” with more funky New York locations, but with less sex, and with fewer laughs.
