The Little Fugitive
The ease of watching rare or classic films at home has made it easier to dismiss cinematic opportunities like this. But for a lover of film presentation, the chance to see this picture on the big screen of a movie palace is a real treat. What's more, it gives me the chance to take my ten-year-old daughter to experience an unusually modest and straightforward style of filmmaking. I'm curious to see whether she'll enjoy it or just shrug it off as a "Dad thing."
