What to Watch: "Clementine" 

From Tribeca to BendFilm, the Oregon-filmed thriller is now available to rent digitally

Portland-based filmmaker Lara Jean Gallagher has reason to celebrate.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2019, her first feature length film, "Clementine,"  is now available to watch digitally thanks to Oscilloscope Pictures.

Some of you movie buffs may have already had the treat to see the drama-filled thriller, as it won Best Narrative Feature Film and Best Cinematography at BendFilm Festival in 2019. I haven't had the opportunity to watch anything other than the trailer yet, but after reading more about it I'll definitely be renting it online this week.

The movie itself is set in the Oregon woods, where Karen (played by Otmara Marrero) breaks into her ex-girlfriend's cabin for some much-needed time alone after a breakup. It's there where she meets Lana (played by Sydney Sweeney) and the trajectory of her secret getaway is altered. Oh, and I can't forget about the handyman Beau. We definitely do not get good vibes from him.

Love, lust, and drama are on horizon in "Clementine," and even the trailer makes me feel unsettled. I have no clue where this story will end up and that's what makes it so intriguing. Just in the brief clips shown during the trailer, the beauty of Oregon and the cinematography jump off the screen. And don't even get me started on Gallagher's use of music—immediate goosebumps.

Right now you can rent "Clementine" digitally from a movie theater of your choosing, like Cinema 21 in Portland or City Lights Cinema in Florence.
