I Saw The TV Glow

Reviews

"The film is among the most profound—and, yes, important—pieces of trans fiction that I’ve yet seen, vividly staged with bold, declarative style while remaining beguilingly elusive. It is open for all kinds of assessment, containing multitudes of meaning. I Saw the TV Glow is a great film to talk about, to pick apart with a friend or fellow traveler over dinner afterwards, to study and reflect on."
– VANITY FAIR

"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."
– INDIEWIRE

"What’s most effective, and staggering, is Schoenbrun’s storytelling, which weaves together half-remembered childhood elements in the way they might turn up in a nightmare, weaving in sounds and lights and colors and the gloriously inexplicable."
– NEW YORK TIMES

"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."

Artist Bio

Director Q&A

Overview

Owen, a withdrawn teenager in 1996, feels out of place in his suburban life. Everything changes when a classmate, Maddy, introduces him to a captivating late-night television show called "The Pink Opaque." This series delves into a fantastical world with teenage heroines battling supernatural threats. Owen becomes obsessed with the show, not just for its plot, but also for the camaraderie it fosters between him and Maddy.

Their friendship deepens as they delve into the show's mythology together. However, their world is shaken when "The Pink Opaque" is abruptly cancelled. With the show gone, the line between reality and the show's fantastical elements begins to blur for Owen. The once comforting glow of the television now seems to hold a sinister secret, and Owen's grip on reality starts to slip as he searches for answers and grapples with the show's sudden disappearance and its impact on his newfound connection with Maddy.
