The highs are high and the lows are low in the official trailer for White Girl, the feature length directorial and writing debut for Elizabeth Wood that caused a buzz at Sundance this year.

The movie follows college student Leah, portayed by Homeland actress Morgan Saylor, as she liberally experiments with hard drugs during a summer in New York City and falls for a drug dealer named Blue (Brian Marc, who will recur in Marvel’s Luke Cage). After Blue is arrested for possession, Leah goes to great lengths to get him back.

White Girl also stars Chris Noth and Justin Bartha, and is scheduled to be released on Aug. 26. Check out the intense trailer above.
