ABOUT JANE SCHOENBRUN

About I Saw the TV Glow

Teenager Owen (Justice Smith) 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.

A mesmerizing coming-of-age film equally indebted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and David Cronenberg, writer-director Jane Schoenbrun’s sophomore feature is a boldly conceived story of self-discovery, defined by the ecstatic highs and devastating pitfalls of pop-cultural obsession. With its magnetic cast and evocative ‘90s-set production design—set to a sensational soundtrack of original music from Alex G., Sloppy Jane and Caroline Polachek among others — I Saw The TV Glow evinces a depth of feeling that dares to embrace the mournful and abstract, and feels destined to become one of the enduring teen movies. — Los Angeles Festival of Movies

REVIEWS

FOUR STARS. “A buzzy, brilliant new film.” — Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

I Saw the TV Glow is the rare (and precious) sophomore feature that resoundingly expands on debut promise, that confirms its filmmaker as a mighty talent whose creative engine is churning into motion.” — Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair

“An astonishing exploration of adolescent angst.” — Jordain Searles, The Hollywood Reporter

GRADE: A. “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

“Sundance’s first breakout…I Saw the TV Glow is a confident leap forward that retains the handmade quality of [We’re All Going To the World’s Fair] while putting the advantages of an A24 budget to eye-popping use.” — Sam Adams, Slate
