Synopsis

Jackie is a normal teenager–except that for as long as she can remember, she’s been in love with her older brother Matthew. They rely on each other for friendship and support, but Matthew doesn’t share his sister’s feelings. When he departs for college, Jackie must contend with life on her own.

MUBI's take

A tender coming-of-age story from Dan Sallitt (Fourteen), The Unspeakable Act lovingly recalls the humanism of Éric Rohmer’s films. Taking on a difficult subject with rare sincerity, Sallitt allows his characters to develop subtly and with warmth. Watch out for Tallie Medel’s mighty portrayal.
