"A twisted, polymorphously perverse rom-com... a dark comedy of manners"
Lost In The White City tells the story of an emotionally charged love triangle set in the hot political climate of modern Tel Aviv. A young couple take a winter break in Tel Aviv as an opportunity to exercise their creativity. But while Eva (Haley Bennett) writes poetry and parties with friends, Kyle (Thomas Dekker) works on a film which expresses his own confused sexuality with Avi (Bob Morley)a young ex-soldierdrawing Avi further into the couple's complex relationship.
Lost In The White City presents a new slant on the love triangle genre, with the backdrop of Tel Aviv as a cultural counterpoint to the American couple's life, as they travel down a self-destructive path as a tense political environment simmers around them.
