awesome coming-of age movie not to be missed!
6 February 2004 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

Cicadas is an awesome coming-of-age movie by a marvelous young director with a small budget that is sure to be looked back at years from now as the first sign of her brilliance. It centers around three kids who are basically left to fend for themselves as the parents have to be on the road making their livings -- a common problem in modern-day America. The young cast of major characters all do a wonderful job, especially Bryan Chafin as Simon and Lindsay Broockman as his older sister. Kat Candler directed, produced, and wrote this touching, at times painful movie, and should not be missed!
