Showtime Documentary Films has acquired worldwide rights to the documentary Cusp , from first-time feature directors Parker Hill and Isabel Bethencourt . Showtime plans to release the pic in theaters later this year, ahead of its network premiere. Set in a small military town in Texas and filmed in vérité style, Cusp follows three wild-spirited teenager girls as they live out a fever-dream summer, watching as the strictures of adolescence clash with their growing desire for personal agency. The coming-of-age doc captures authentic moments of female friendship, while also addressing what it means to grow up in a culture of toxic masculinity. Premiering earlier this year at Sundance, the pic earned its directors the festival’s Emerging Filmmaker Special Jury Award.
