The Kid with a Bike

On Monday, I watched a movie that may particularly interest readers here, The Kid with a Bike.

The film, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, is “about a child, abandoned to the elements, learning to become good.”

The bicycle is prominent throughout the film, both as a practical prop (it’s how the boy gets around) and at various times as a symbol of innocence, betrayal, violence, forgiveness, and kindness.

Here’s the trailer. Go ahead and try not to get teary-eyed.

This is a film I’ll be watching a second time, for sure.
