Critic's Choice Of The Week

Small Body (12A)

In 1900, the Catholic Church decrees that any child who dies before they can be baptised must be condemned to the oblivion of limbo. Agata gives birth to a stillborn baby in her close-knit fishing village and is distraught at the thought that her little one will be nameless and forgotten. One of the superstitious locals tells her of a church in the north, where children can be magically brought back to life for a single breath - long enough for them to be baptised and recognised by the Church.

Freshman Alex Dall is an academic high-flier with a full scholarship to Wellington University, who continually pushes herself to out-perform her peers. Alex’s laidback girlfriend Dani urges her to calm down, fearful that she will burn out, but Alex continues on her self-destructive course. She sets her sights on winning a seat in the lead varsity boat of the rowing team – a battle of body and mind that will take an extreme physical and psychological toll.
