Movie Diary 2/5/2019

Capernaum (Nadine Labaki, 2018). A neorealist approach to a heartrending kids-in-the-streets scenario, the streets here belonging to Beirut. What really makes it go are the actors, including a young lead (Zain Al Rafeea) who might put you in mind of the kid from Pixote. Also there’s a baby who gives an amazing sustained performance – how, I don’t know.
