Body

Though its subject matter appears familiar, this beautiful, deeply lyrical film is a haunting and poetic story of growing up that looks like a Terrence Malick film and is blessed with memorable performances. Jonah (Evan Rosado) – confused by his emerging sexuality – and his two older brothers run wild through the woods near their upstate New York home, but struggle to deal with their father’s violence toward their loving mother (Sheila Vand, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night). Beautifully observed and shot with grace and compassion by Jeremiah Zagar.
