White Girl is a 2016 American drama film directed by Elizabeth Wood. The movie stars Morgan Saylor as Leah, a college student who moves to an apartment in Queens after landing an internship at a magazine in Manhattan. The film follows her introduction to the city and her experiences with love, sex, drugs, and an encounter with the law.

The movie opens with Leah arriving at her new apartment, where she meets her Latino neighbors, Blue (Brian Marc) and his friend, Lloyd (Adrian Martinez). Blue quickly becomes attracted to Leah, and she reciprocates the attraction. They begin a relationship, which is complicated by their different backgrounds and outlooks on life.

In her quest to explore the city, Leah begins doing drugs and partying with her new friends. Her drug use becomes excessive, and she starts to fall behind on her responsibilities at work. As she struggles to balance her job, her relationship with Blue, and her drug use, everything comes crashing down when Blue is arrested.

Leah is left to navigate a world she doesn't understand. She turns to Blue's drug dealer, Kelly (Justin Bartha), for help getting him out of jail. In exchange, Kelly uses Leah's privileged status to sell drugs to her affluent friends.

As Leah's problems intensify, she starts to recognize the inherent racism and classism in her situation. Despite her privileged white status, the system she's caught up in is not working in her favor. She becomes increasingly aware of her fragility and how quickly things can go wrong.

Overall, White Girl is a gritty and realistic portrayal of one young woman's journey through New York City. The film explores themes of race, class, and privilege, offering a commentary on the systemic issues that affect young people today. The movie is not for the faint of heart and contains nudity, strong language, and drug use. However, for those who can handle the content, it offers a poignant and thought-provoking look at the darker side of life in New York City.

White Girl is a 2016 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 65.
