“Moving, insightful, and frequently astonishing…something truly magical” (TIFF)

“serves as a provocative, eye-opening and brave cautionary tale that sheds light on the exploitative nature of filmmaking and on the struggles that child actors go through on and off a film set.” (NYC Movie Guru)

“one of the most touching and illuminating films of the year…It’s a film-within-a-film, a rare feature that masterfully blurs the line between narrative and documentary to create a wholesome, unique experience…A remarkable achievement of filmmaking and human compassion.” (Awards Watch)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
