Drama / TV-Series (2021)
In Betty, a diverse group of young women navigates their lives through the male-dominated world of skateboarding in New York City. Starring Dede Lovelace, Moonbear, Nina Moran, Ajani Russell, and Rachelle Vinberg, from Crystal Moselle’s original film Skate Kitchen.
End of the season 1, the young women at the center of the story succeed in having a group skate together, but there are plenty of other character plotlines and questions left unanswered. Betty’s strength is in the questions it brings up about society, girlhood, race, sexuality, and other important parts of life, and not necessarily whether or not it presents concrete answers. It’s a character study of these complex young women, and there’s definitely plenty of interesting places Betty season 2 could go.
Betty follows a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding, set against the backdrop of New York City.
