Storyline

On the outskirts of Austin, 10-year-old Annie tears around on her BMX bike, hurls dough at cars, and smashes things up with her baseball bat. Her father, a goat farmer-cum-demolition derby driver, does little parenting. Annie has no friends her age, so her daily routine is filled with solitary mischief. Playing in the woods one day, she hears a woman's plaintive call for help from an abandoned well. Though Annie feels driven to visit the well daily, she is unsure about how to deal with the woman's plight. Written by Sundance Film Festival

Just got back from the Sundance premiere!
23 January 2012 | by (Austin, Tx) – See all my reviews

Having been a long-time fan of the Zellner Bros.' work, I was pretty eager to see their latest feature. Needless-to-say, KID-THING did not disappoint. I loved every second of it, and can't wait to see it again!

Newcomer, Sydney Aguirre, gives a break-out performance as Annie -- a friendless, essentially parent-less, 11 year old who roams around her east-Texas town wreaking havoc. One day, while hanging out alone in the woods, Annie comes across a woman at the bottom of a well (voiced by Hollywood legend, Susan Tyrrell). The cast is rounded out by the Zellner Bros. themselves (who are delightful as usual), and a host of interesting characters -- a catatonic, young birthday girl, a blind, backwards-guitar playing singer, lots and lots of farm animals (alive and dead), etc.

I can't recommend this film enough. Check it out if you get the chance!
