Leeds Bicycle Film Club: The Kid With A Bike

From Ian Street of the Leeds Bicycle Film Club:

Our February screening on 15 Feb will be the award winning The Kid With A Bike:

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, the deeply moving film by the Dardenne brothers delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril (Thomas Doret). When his father (Jérémie Renier) abandons him, Cyril obsessively searches for his bicycle – placing his last bit of hope in this symbol of their relationship. Almost by accident, he becomes the ward of a kind hairdresser (Cécile de France), who seems surprised to find herself so determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her – though she refuses to give up without a fight.

Date: 15 February

Venue: The Reliance, 76-78 North Street Leeds LS2 7PN GB
