Storyline

Fort Tilden: New York City's secluded seaside nirvana where, like flies to honey, Brooklyn's hip millennial set flocks on sweltering weekend afternoons for unbridled summertime indulgence. Amidst the vexing stagnation of quarter-life crises, Allie (Clare McNulty) struggles to prepare for the Peace Corps, while Harper (Bridey Elliot) awaits checks from her father to fund her artistic dreams. But the two friends quickly shun responsibilities for the day when a pair of good-looking guys invites them along for a carefree Fort Tilden afternoon. As the two young women board their fixed-gear bicycles and embark on a lengthy journey to the beach, they quickly realize that, akin to their confusing, transitioning lives, they neither know where they're going nor how they plan to get there. The debut feature film of directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers - and showcasing the comedic versatility of Clare McNulty and Bridey Elliott as Allie and Harper - "Fort Tilden" is a hilariously ...

Trivia

The trailer shows Allie (played by [Clare McNultythe]) texting, "I'll give you my trust fund if you throw their guitars of the roof", and Harper (played by [Bridey Elliott]) responding with: "I don't feel like being a hero". This only appears in the trailer and not in the movie, that has a different texting "conversation". See more »

20 October 2014 | by tigerfish50See all my reviews

'Fort Tilden' is the tale of a ten-mile road trip by a couple of tiresome Brooklyn trust fund brats, who head for the beach to hook up with a pair of charmless dudes. Their big adventure soon turns into a plodding marathon by bicycle, cab and foot, since this airhead odyssey comprises only lame exchanges and minor fiascoes involving various acquaintances and strangers. The 'heroines' are portrayed as spineless selfish simpletons, and although the film is clearly intended to be a comedy, it's short on laughs, wit or interest.

The actresses struggle gamely with the pedestrian material, but their characters' feckless behavior and whiny griping leaves one hoping a truck will squash them into roadkill at every intersection. When they finally meet their romantic prospects on a gray windswept seashore, the encounter is just another flaccid flop in a series of screw-ups.
