Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry once more coaxes remarkable performances from a young cast in this Brazilian-set tale of triumph over adversity.
Three young boys live and work in the favelas in Rio, sorting through trash on the local rubbish dump. When a wallet is unearthed, the boys are delighted and share the cash between them. But they soon realise there is something far more important in the wallet when a corrupt police inspector turns up, desperate to find it.
“The trio paint an indelible portrait of youth in crisis.” ★★★★ The Guardian
