RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS (2014)
At only 85 minutes this could be the most ambitious movie I’ve seen in years. Set in 1976, the film follows a young native american girl named Alia. The story revolves around the real life case of residential schools abusing (mentally and physically) the young native community of Canada. At its core it is a revenge story, but allows itself to morph into a rebellious piece of folk art.
I do warn that this is a very rough way to spend your time. From the opening 5 minutes it starts on a down note and never really recovers into anything much cheerier. That said, if you can take a little emotional abuse and want to see something inspiring, get on Netflix and watch it! 4/5 STARS
