After Lillian runs away from a school trip to Washington D.C., she embarks on a journey that could perhaps best be described as a kind of "Alice in a pretty damn messed-up American wonderland." She chases after many peculiar rabbits and takes us on a surreal adventure, where she encounters anarchistic punks, conspiratorial neo-Nazis, radical Muslims, narcissistic filmmakers, and a polarized society.

Cinematographer Sean Price Williams has made a sensuous, bittersweet, and marvelous debut as director, shot on exquisite textured 16mm film. Rising star Talia Ryder shines at the forefront of an otherwise idiosyncratic cast, including Jacob Elordi, Ayo Edebiri, and veteran Simon Rex. The result is a unique cinematic experience where the American dream is as much a nightmare, and you can never quite predict what kind of crazy twist awaits around the next corner.

The Sweet East became a talking point after its premiere in Cannes. Since then, it has rightfully been praised by both critics and audiences at film festivals around the world.
