Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To See THE KID WITH A BIKE At The Tivoli In St. Louis
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the deeply moving new film by the Dardenne brothers (L’enfant, Rosetta) delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril (newcomer Thomas Doret). When his father (Jérémie Renier) abandons him, Cyril obsessively tries to find his bicycle—after all, his father must have cared about him enough not to sell that off, he reasons. Almost by accident, he becomes the ward of a kind hairdresser (Cécile de France), a woman who seems surprised to find herself so determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her—though she refuses to give up without a fight. Full of heartbreaking betrayals and unexpected grace, THE KID WITH A BIKE is a film about a child, abandoned to the elements, learning to become good.

ACCLAIM FOR THE KID WITH A BIKE
“MAGNIFICENT. One of the most compelling spectacles you’ll see this year. The Dardennes can justly be regarded as without peer.”
Gavin Smith, Film Comment
“Most movies come and go in the space of a few weeks. Movies like this one will still be watched, and admired, decades from now….The Dardennes’ gift for shattering simplicity still seems akin to magic.”
Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal
“TERRIFIC. An edge-of-your-seat emotional roller-coaster ride…it’s sometimes terrifying, often heart-rending and completely worth it. Definitely sunnier and arguably more accessible than their earlier films. Not a second is wasted, and every scene has a purpose.”
Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
“Another extraordinary portrait from the brilliant directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne… every emotion translates on screen so rawly and honestly, that a lot of the film just tears your heart out.”
Dennis Dermody, PAPER
