NSFW Trailer For White Girl Takes A Deep Dive Into NYC’s Underbelly

Morgan Saylor takes a deep dive into NYC’s underbelly in the shocking, sexy and decidedly NSFW trailer for Elizabeth Wood’s directorial debut, White Girl.

Wood, who recently came attached to long-gestating superhero film Captain Marvel, premiered her first feature film at Sundance earlier this year, and though it didn’t take home any awards, the review accolades sprinkled across today’s inaugural trailer are enough to pique our curiosity.

From a drug-induced nightmare to a stylish, cutting-edge portrayal of NYC, the early consensus for Wood’s film runs the gamut, and it’ll be fascinating to see how it fares with the moviegoing masses later this year.

The cross section between New York’s mean streets and its gentrified alcoves makes for potent social satire in Elizabeth Wood’s tough and exhilarating debut. Equipped with platinum blonde hair and a winning smile, college girl Leah (Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form. She has two weeks before fall semester, and in between getting high with her roommate and snorting lines with her boss, she finds time to hit it off with a handsome, young Puerto Rican drug dealer named Blue. Within days, the two are selling dime bags to her affluent white colleagues, collecting fast cash, and living the high life. But their euphoria comes to a grinding halt once Blue is arrested and Leah’s left with a hefty amount of his coke. Does she sell it to save him or use it herself?

Also starring Morgan Saylor, Brian Marc, Justin Bartha, Adrian Martinez, India Salvor Menuez, Anthony Ramos, Ralph Rodriguez, Annabelle Dexter Jones and Chris Noth, look for White Girl to stage a party like no other when Elizabeth Wood’s directorial debut lands in theaters come September.
