You can do a lot with very few elements and lots of imagination. The child stars of this film are very aware of this, and also the director Cory McAbee, who’s also a musician and an actor (and a father, we presume). A dilettant imaginative older sister drags her unconditional younger brother to a world where wild things are ephemeral and the stars are nothing but traces you find in the neighborhood’s sidewalks. The union of those trivial adventures and a complicated script the girl weaves inside her mind will turn that innocent wandering into a world of wonders. McAbee knows how to sharply combine Lewis Carroll delirium with childhood’s most basic fears, and let reality intervene each time these adventurers need a break…and then climb on it to reach new heights. The kid’s natural performance –that is if we should talk here about acting– makes the rest. A clear example of independent cinema: how to travel with almost nothing, including a time machine.
