THE KID WITH A BIKE (dir. Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, 2011, Belgium).
I’ve loved every taut, honest movie I’ve seen from the Dardennes, and their “fairy tale” of a foster kid trying to scrap his way back to his dad is no exception. Thomas Doret is raw, violent, and vulnerable, and Cécile de France matches him as the foster mother who refuses to let him scare her off.
