Eureka Entertainment is set to release SWEET THING, the poetic, uplifting story of childhood adventure and imagination from critically-acclaimed filmmaker Alexandre Rockwell, in a worldwide Blu-ray debut as part of the Montage Pictures range from 15th November 2021. The first Print Run will feature a Limited-Edition Collector’s Booklet.
In New Bedford Massachusetts, a dysfunctional family portrayed in all shades of black-and-white, lead forgotten lives. One eventful summer, in an act of liberation, the kids Billie and Nico set off on their own adventure into the fantastic and poetic world of childhood, unseen by the adults around them.
From acclaimed director Alexandre Rockwell (In The Soup, Little Feet), Sweet Thing is an intense but ultimately uplifting, poetic rendering of childhood that captures the essence of that time in life when a day can last forever. The friendships, loyalties, and challenges of adolescent youth propel the story into a triumph of childhood hope and resilience.
