Directed by Laura Wandel/72 minutes
In French with English subtitles
In this sleeper masterpiece, the everyday reality of grade school is seen from a child’s-eye-view. Following 7-year-old Nora and her big brother Abel, we see Nora struggling to fit in before finding her place in the schoolyard. But Abel is being bullied by other kids and endures the degradation in silence. An empathetic and visceral portrait of the cruelty of children and the failure of adults to protect them. Winner of 24 awards. Rotten Tomatoes – 100%.
“In a perfect hour and 12 minutes, “Playground” tells the sweeping, intimate story of a child’s coming into consciousness. This is the first feature from the writer-director Laura Wandel, and it’s a knockout, as flawlessly constructed as it is harrowing.”- Manohla Dargis, NYT.
