THE KID WITH A BIKE

DIRECTOR: Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne - BELGIUM

The Dardennes’ latest film centers on Cyril, a restless 11-year-old boy placed in a children’s home after being abandoned by his father. Unwilling to face the fact that parents are imperfect people, Cyril runs away to his former apartment block in search of both Dad and his abandoned bicycle. Rebuffed by his father, he meets Samantha, a kind hairdresser who helps to retrieve his bike and eventually agrees to become his weekend guardian.

KING OF DEVIL’S ISLAND

DIRECTOR: Marius Holst - NORWAY

This gripping true story of an uprising in a brutally run Norwegian reform school in 1915 is told in an epic style that won the Best Film Prize at the Norwegian Film Awards. Located on a remote island in the Oslo fjord, the Bastoy Boys’ Home was established as a place to reform wayward teenagers—using beatings, manual labor, and rigid discipline to keep the youngsters subdued. But when newcomer Erling arrives on the island and starts to question the authority of the abusive “housefathers,” he finds more than a murmur of support from his fellow inmates.

KISS ME

DIRECTOR: Alexandra-Therese Keining - SWEDEN

“Love can blossom at the most inopportune moments—and that’s what happens to Mia and Frida, two thirty-something professionals who meet at a party celebrating the engagement of Frida’s mother and Mia’s father. As future stepsisters—not to mention the fact that Mia is herself engaged—theirs will not be an easy path. From this beginning, Keining fashions a nuanced and deeply felt drama that does not avoid confronting the barriers—both personal and social—faced by her same-sex couple. For the heretofore-hetero Mia, her attraction to Frida—a lesbian very comfortable in her own skin—is a shock. But as their relationship develops emotionally and sexually,...
