It is summer in the 1980s, and ten-year-old Sara's whole world is her front yard and the park at the end of the street. With her parents consumed in domestic battles, Sara experiences life uncensored. She glimpses sex, both gorgeous and awful, and broken hearts, one of them, her own. When Sara's idea of fun gets her forbidden from everyone her own age, Sara finds her way into the lives of two older boys; boys who, like Sara, are ill-fitting neighborhood legends. Written by
Ninth Street Chronicles played with my short at Austin Film Festival last weekend, and I have to say, it was probably my favorite of the bunch. (Aquarium also rocked).
I felt the film was daring but real. Never trying too hard for some kind of forced quirkiness but just going for the guts of whatever it was exploring and pulling you into that in the warmest possible way.
The acting was incredible and the direction was great. It was easy to lose myself inside it...
I'd really love to see more from Megan Martin and more starring Samantha Weinstein!
