The Foster Boy

Foster children are abused in this bleak drama from Switzerland. Amongst a landscape of lush mountains, a young accordionist is forced to live on a failing farm where he meets hardship after hardship. Beautifully shot and very well acted, The Foster Boy was a total drag. I mean seriously, it's foster children...being abused...on a farm. There's dirt, and beatings, and accordions on fire. The Foster Boy was a very good film, but there's no way I'd ever watch it again. The Foster Boy played at the Cleveland International Film Festival, and breathe a sigh of relief that you missed it.
