A Ciambra
First screened in October 2017

Twitter Capsule: The tactile throb of Arnold, the steel-cable tension of Audiard. Coming of age and into crime, messily but so memorably.

VOR:   Not every turn or trait feels new from other crime-inflected youth stories, or even from Carpignano's previous film. But it's brave, timely, and unusual.
