Sweet Thing 15

Fri 17 – Thu 23 Sep

"★★★★ – A low-key delight" – Guardian

“Alexandre Rockwell’s Sweet Thing is one of the most powerful new films I’ve seen in years. The whole film has soul” – Quentin Tarantino

In New Bedford Massachusetts, a dysfunctional family portrayed in all shades of black-and-white, lead forgotten lives.

One eventful summer, in an act of liberation, the kids Billie and Nico set off on their own adventure into the fantastic and poetic world of childhood, unseen by the adults around them.

Winner of the Crystal Bear from the youth jury at the Berlin Film Festival and shot on black and white 16mm film, Sweet Thing is the sort of soulful, heartfelt film that renews your faith in indie filmmaking.

Dir: Alexandre Rockwell
