A confronting new sex comedy-drama from writer-director Lena Dunham (Girls, Tiny Furniture).
Sarah Jo (Kristine Froseth) is a sensitive and naïve 26-year-old living on the fringes of Hollywood with her disillusioned mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and influencer sister (Taylour Paige). Working as a caregiver and just longing to be seen, she begins an exploratory affair with her older, married employer (Jon Bernthal), and begins a startling exploration on sexuality, loss and power.
“The ideological murkiness of Sharp Stick is one of the most rewarding things about it.” ~Natalia Keogan, Paste Magazine
“There’s something thrilling about Dunham’s refusal to give her film a clear social intent. Much like Sarah Jo’s sexual dalliances, Sharp Stick is ultimately about the excitement of exploration.” ~Jourdain Searles, The Hollywood Reporter
