Storyline

FOR CAROLINE is the story of Alan Blok, an eccentric and lonely eleven year old desperately struggling to fit in at school. Alan lives at home with his oppressive grandmother who, in the wake of the deaths of his parents, resents having to take care of him. Failing to find love at home and unable to befriend the popular kids at school, Alan finds himself drawn to Caroline Alexander, an equally eccentric and endearingly enthusiastic fourth grader. However Caroline is the only person at school with fewer friends than Alan. Laughed at by his classmates and chastised by his oppressive grandmother for spending time with her, Alan ultimately must decide between his desire to be accepted and his need to accept himself. Written by Poull Brien

Tragedy of Youth - Hooray!
15 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Very pretty movie - I stumbled into it on IFC. While at times, it seems a little trite, the movie more than redeems itself at the end, and is visually a stunning experience.

The Alan character brought me back to my own dissolute youth, and hit it right on, in terms of the confusion that I felt in that struggle between popularity and my own belief system.

And Caroline was the cutest little girl ever, although a bit annoying at times - though I guess that was her role.

Upon researching their DP, I saw it was Frank Demarco from Hedwig, so I guess that explains why the visual was so strong, but these two guys definitely had a cool vision of their own.

Definitely worth the watch.
