The Big Screen: ‘Never Goin’ Back’

by Stephen Becker 8 Aug 2018 10:21 AM

We talk with Augustine Frizzell, the film’s Dallas-based director, about telling a story she lived



In the “Never Goin’ Back,” a couple of hard-partying teenage girls dream of hitting the beach. Instead, their lives are consumed with keeping their heads above water as they struggle to make rent. The film has made the rounds on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance before slots at SXSW and the Oak Cliff Film Festival. It’s collected some nice reviews along the way. And now, it’s finally out. This week, we talk with Augustine Frizzell, its Dallas-based director, about telling a story she once lived. She’ll take part in a Q&A moderated by Chris Vognar following the film’s 7:30 showing Friday night at the Magnolia Theatre in Dallas.
