If you’ve been waiting to see what Lena Dunham would get up to next in film and TV, today’s your day.
The first trailer for Sharp Stick is here. Dunham directed the 2022 Sundance entry, which stars Kristine Froseth as Sarah Jo, a sensitive and wide-eyed 26-year-old caregiver from Los Angeles who’s just trying to find her way. That uncertainty leads her right into the arms and bare chest of her married boss (Jon Bernthal) and the chaotic life lessons that follow.
Sharp Stick stars Froseth, Bernthal, Dunham, Luka Sabbat, Scott Speedman, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Taylour Paige, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It’s set for a limited release in New York and Los Angeles on July 29, followed by a wide release on Aug. 5.
