In one of the greatest coming-of-age stories of the cinema, we meet 12-year-old Ingemar, who's sent to live with his uncle in a country village after his mother gets sick. There, with the help of the eccentrics who populate the town, the boy finds refuge, warmth, and unexpected adventure. Featuring an incredibly natural performance by its young star, this unforgettable film is a bittersweet evocation of the struggles and joys of growing up. With subtitles. (Lasse Hallström; Sweden; 1985; 101 min)
