The new kid
30 June | 11:00h | Teatro Principal
Benoît, the new kid at school, is about to discover that making friends is not easy when you are a shy 14-year-old and your class is ruled by a bunch of arrogant bullies. “A typical start for a teen comedy”, you would be tempted to say. And you would be wrong. French director Rudi Rosenberg manages to breathe some fresh air into the genre with his debut film. The New Kid is a fresh, funny, and touching portrayal of puberty and the discovery of love and true friendship.
