"Suncoast" – Laura Chinn's feature-film debut – made a big splash at Sundance, where its lead Nico Parker (The Last of Us) bagged the Breakthrough Performance prize. Starring alongside Laura Linney (Ozark) and Woody Harrelson (White House Plumbers), Parker’s performance as a teenager caring for her terminally ill brother earned rave reviews. Here's how to watch Suncoast online now – and exclusively on Hulu in the U.S.

Profoundly sad and full of heart, Chinn’s first venture as a director is a coming-of-age tale inspired by some of the very best indie dramedies. "Greta Gerwig is someone I look up to. 'Ladybird' was a huge inspiration for 'Suncoast', [and] so was 'Juno' and 'Little Miss Sunshine,'" Chinn recently revealed.

The film gathers its emotional heft from its semi-autobiographical origin. Based on Chinn's early years, it follows Doris (Parker), a teenage girl whose childhood caring for her terminally ill brother Max (Cree Kawa) isolates her from her high school peers. When her mother Kristine (Linney) moves in with Max to an end-of-life facility, Doris finally enjoys certain rites of passage, including a kiss with her high school crush.

But as Paul (Harrelson), the eccentric activist that she befriends at Max’s hospice, reminds her, sooner or later she’ll have to contend with the loss of her brother.

Described as "a heartbreakingly real coming-of-age story" by The Wall Street Journal, "Suncoast" is a three-hanky triumph. Read on for our guide to all the ways you can watch Suncoast online, for free and from anywhere in the world.
