I Saw the TV Glow

Opens May 17

Teenager Owen is just trying to make it through life in the suburbs when his classmate introduces him to a mysterious late-night TV show — a vision of a supernatural world beneath their own. In the pale glow of the television, Owen’s view of reality begins to crack. The newest film from Jane Schoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.

"In capturing the trans experience with language that only cinema can convey, Schoenbrun has crafted one of the most original, evocative, adventurous films of this decade."
Jordan Raup, The Film Stage
"Schoenbrun’s astonishing second feature manages to retain the seductive fear of their micro-budget debut and deepen its thrilling wounds of discovery even while examining them at a much larger scale."
David Ehrlich, IndieWire
