A standout at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Never Rarely Sometimes Always marks director Eliza Hittman’s (Beach Rats, It Felt Like Love) third feature—and an artistic leap forward for the writer-director, according to our film editor, A.A. Dowd. Dowd caught the world premiere of Never Rarely Sometimes Always at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and described the drama, about a teenager from rural Pennsylvania and her cousin traveling to New York City by bus to get an abortion, as “ vital and timely, especially at a moment when the legality of abortion is coming under fresh judicial attack.”
