Programmer Notes: One of the most amazing films I have ever seen. Cinematically stunning, this story of a young boy being raised by a heroin addicted mother is a powerful look at the unconditional love forged between parent and child. The acting Is breathtaking, and Jeremy Miliker as Adrien, is phenomenal. Not to be missed.
