A lovely film with wonderful shots (not surprising since the films creator was a photographer)
Kid should have grown up to be a ball player. Kid had a killer swing.
Very thin plot, but a uniquely independent feel for 1953. I might lump it with movies like The Exiles (1961) and Killer of Sheep (1978) as "American Neorealism", even though it bears a stronger resemblance to later Iranian kiddy neorealism-lite movies like Where is the Friends Home? (1987) and Children of Heaven (1997).
