Cruise (2018)

It is the summer of 1987, and working-class Italian-American Gio Fortunato (Spencer Boldman) has little on his mind but racing cars and chasing girls. An auto-parts store clerk by day, Gio comes alive every night on Francis Lewis Boulevard, the Queens cruising strip all the local kids flock to in search of good times. The king of the boulevard, Gio thinks he has got it all figured out until one fateful night when he crosses paths with Jessica Weinberg (Emily Ratajkowski), a nice Jewish girl from Long Island who goes undercover as a guidette for some illicit thrills on the wrong side of the tracks. Sparks fly between blue-collar Gio and the sophisticated college girl, who embark on an unlikely summer romance that turns his carefree world upside-down.

otsoNY Comments: This is only the 2nd New York-based film for Emily Ratajkowski, whilst the first being her brief appearance in the 2014 mystery thriller "Gond Girl" starring alongside Ben Affleck. This is however, Ratajkowski's first leading starring role, after playing supporting roles "Entourage" and "We Are Your Friends", which had preceded this movie in production.
