Morris Engel, Ray Asheley & Ruth Orkin / USA / 1953 / 1h 20m
In 1950s Brooklyn, while his mother is away, Lennie - who had planned to spend the weekend with friends - has been told to sit his 7-year-old brother, Joey. To get out of this duty he plays a trick on the child, simulating a gun accident. Convinced he has caused the death of his brother, Joey flees to Coney Island, a huge New York beach full of rides and fun.
This film, one of the jewels of American realistic cinema, paints a beautiful portrait of childhood.
