The Arbor Review


Essential
With this bracingly original debut feature, artist Barnard creates one of the most involving and moving documentaries in memory. Stylistically mixing filmmaking approaches, she engulfs us in a fiercely inventive movie experience.

There are obstacles, of course. Will's family belongs to a strict religious organization that forbids movies, television, and other forms of pop culture. Lee's own family is nonexistent. His parents travel often, leaving him in the care of an older brother who could care less.
