    In Electrick Children, a naive teenage girl living in an Amish-like cult, becomes mysteriously pregnant and believes herself to have been visited by the Angel of God through a piece of music found on a forbidden cassette tape. Facing judgement from her community and a shotgun wedding to a local boy, she runs away to the city to find the father of her child, the man whose voice is responsible. She won't find what she's looking for exactly, but writer-director Rebecca Thomas then gives us an odd, but sweet romance that relates to the story of the Biblical Mary and Joseph. The film doesn't play as a condemnation of faith, though the more cynical viewer can ferret out the clues to the baby's true paternity, but it forces you to leave it as conjecture. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking the miracle at face value in the context of the film, which truly exists within the singular point of view of its innocent and good-hearted heroine. 4 years ago

    What a cool little film! Dreamy atmosphere, great performances and a neat story. One of those films where you can't help but feel you're witnessing something special 5 years 5 months ago
