Sister, directed by Ursula Meier, is rated 96% by critics on Rotten Tomatoes and is a serious contender for the upcoming Oscar nominations for best foreign language film.
Brief summary and what critics say:
Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein) lives with his older sister (Léa Seydoux) in a housing complex below a luxury Swiss ski resort. With his sister drifting in and out of jobs and relationships, twelve-year-old Simon takes on the responsibility of providing for the two of them, stealing equipment from rich tourists to resell to the local kids down in the valley. But, when Simon partners with a crooked British seasonal worker, he begins to lose his boundaries, affecting his relationship with his sister and plummeting him into dangerous territory.
“Sister, the official Swiss entry in the Oscar competition for foreign language film (it’s in French), is haunting and sad. And absolutely worth seeing.” – Stephen Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
“A penetrating study of familial bonds, quietly devastating in parts, beautiful on whole and destined to make you fall in love with a practiced and entirely amoral preteen thief.” – Mary F. Pols, Time Magazine
“Kacey Mottet Klein turns in a remarkable performance as a kid who steals to support his shaky family of two in Ursula Meier’s ‘Sister.’ [co-starring Léa Seydoux] …The chemistry between the two leads is a razor’s-edge dance: feral, childish, tender and always complex. Seydoux, seen earlier this year in “Farewell My Queen,” is a screen presence of remarkable earthiness who makes Louise’s wounds fully felt without defining them.” -Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
