Sydney Aguirre, Susan Tyrrell

The Zellner brothers bring their trademark deadpan humour to a poignant and disturbing tale of growing up wild. Somewhere in rural America, 10-year-old Annie lives with her divorced father, who is even more incompetent at parenting than he is at goat farming. Left to her own devices, Annie wanders the nearby town and woods, committing random acts of anarchic destructiveness, until she forms a relationship with a woman trapped in a well. “Bracingly original… a female trailer-trash 400 Blows” (Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily).
