August in the Water ★★★★½

Teenage soulmates, growing to know love on an asteroid hurdling towards a 30 degree sun. Being voltaic children in a time of our lives where the world is plummeting is a terrifying beauty. There might not be any generation beyond the current skinny gravestones, there might not be any soul remaining to transcend time and form the new dawn. For now, as a creature in the beautiful detour, there can only be adoration for the celestiality of descending from the Milky Way into Here Knows Where. Every drop of water is afraid before it hits the sea. But the Pacific is the strongest, warmest outer saint.
