The kid with a bike – Saturday 5 January

APPLETON FILM SOCIETY PRESENTS
The Kid with a bike (Le gamin au vélo)

7.30pm Saturday 5th January 2013

Dir. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne | 2011 | Belgium | 87 mins | Cert. 12a


Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, the deeply moving new film by the Dardenne brothers delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril (Thomas Doret). When his father (Jérémie Renier) abandons him, Cyril obsessively searches for his bicycle - placing his last bit of hope in this symbol of their relationship. Almost by accident, he becomes the ward of a kind hairdresser (Cécile de France), who seems surprised to find herself so determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her - though she refuses to give up without a fight.
