The Kid with a Bike

Friday, March 16 - Thursday, June 7, 2012

A deeply moving tale of extraordinary grace, the Dardenne brothers’ (L’enfant, Rosetta) new film focuses on a troubled 11-year-old, abandoned by his father (Dardenne favorite Jérémie Renier). Randomly, 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, the boy risks losing her—but she refuses to give up on him without a fight.
