Candace Evanofski, Donald Holden, Curtis Cotton.
A deceptively simple tale of a group of children in a squalid North Carolina town who band together to cover up a tragic mistake. Green's poignant debut feature is an extraordinarily assured work with an aesthetic reminiscent of Days of Thunder yet totally original in its ability to make the ordinary look beautiful.
