Storyline

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 Megan Martin

Martin's directorial debut will make TIFF sit up and take notice!
24 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Daring, seethingly funny, dark, and humbling, Ninth Street takes you back to a summer in the 80s--boredom, angst, coveting normalcy, experimentations with life and love...all from the perspective of a child (contrary to that imposed upon her by adults). Ninth Street Chronicles is a gorgeously shot, brilliantly written short by writer and first-time director Megan Martin.

Child prostitution, affairs, mental anguish, addiction, world events, first love, tall-tales, and drugstore cowboys...from the perspective of Sarah, a smart, inquisitive, smart, no-bullshit 10-year old girl (Samantha Weinstein). Speedo Boy is brilliantly cast, Weinstein's portrayal of Sarah is mesmerizing. I hope to see more from Megan Martin's imagination soon!
