Crows (66 mins)
Wrona (which means “crow” in Polish) is neglected by her feckless mother, laughed at by her classmates, and furious with the world. So she steals a cute little girl to become her surrogate mother. But she soon discovers just how hard being a parent really is. Dorota Kiedzerawska’s remarkable film about a damaged girl trying to heal herself is tough yet tender, elevated by gorgeous cinematography and ultimately exhilarating.
