Berlinale: Electrick Children
Just caught the world premiere of "Electrick Children", a movie about a Mormon girl in search of the mysterious voice on a tape that (she believes) got her pregnant. Often funny, at times suspenseful, always heartfelt and emotionally engaging, it observes the clash of two worlds through the eyes of a 15-year-old who's just been forced to ask questions and doubt everything she's ever known. The script is insightful and highly original, the young cast superb, all in all this marks a splendid debut from writer/director Rebecca Thomas.
