Pialat’s arresting feature debut, about a truculent ten-year-old boy who rebels against his foster parents, is clearly indebted to Truffaut; the film identified its director almost immediately as one keenly sympathetic to troubled youths. A postscreening discussion moderated by writer-programmer Miriam Bale will follow. Participants include Thomas Beard from Light Industry, Richard Brody of The New Yorker, author Emily Gould, A.S. Hamrah of n+1 and Choire Sicha of the Awl.
