Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

What to Watch: "Clementine"

From Tribeca to BendFilm, the Oregon-filmed thriller is now available to rent digitally

Portland-based filmmaker Lara Jean Gallagher has reason to celebrate.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2019, her first feature length film, "Clementine,"  is now available to watch digitally thanks to Oscilloscope Pictures.

Some of you movie buffs may have already had the treat to see the drama-filled thriller, as it won Best Narrative Feature Film and Best Cinematography at BendFilm Festival in 2019. I haven't had the opportunity to watch anything other than the trailer yet, but after reading more about it I'll definitely be renting it online this week.

The movie itself is set in the Oregon woods, where Karen (played by Otmara Marrero) breaks into her ex-girlfriend's cabin for some much-needed time alone after a breakup. It's there where she meets Lana (played by Sydney Sweeney) and the trajectory of her secret getaway is altered. Oh, and I can't forget about the handyman Beau. We definitely do not get good vibes from him.

Love, lust, and drama are on horizon in "Clementine," and even the trailer makes me feel unsettled. I have no clue where this story will end up and that's what makes it so intriguing. Just in the brief clips shown during the trailer, the beauty of Oregon and the cinematography jump off the screen. And don't even get me started on Gallagher's use of music—immediate goosebumps.

Right now you can rent "Clementine" digitally from a movie theater of your choosing, like Cinema 21 in Portland or City Lights Cinema in Florence.
