Synopsis

Annie is a rebellious ten-year-old girl. She lives on the outskirts of town with her father Marvin, who, when not herding goats, mostly sleeps the day away. Virtually devoid of parental guidance, Annie is left to fend for herself and do as she pleases. With no moral compass, she roams the neighboring lands, shoplifting and engaging in general destructive behavior. Her routine is broken one day while playing in the woods; she hears an old woman calling from deep within an abandoned well, asking for help. Scared and untrusting of the unseen stranger, Annie deliberates on her course of action.

Press

"Spearheaded by phenomenal pint-sized lead Sydney Aguirre, this challenging third feature from the Zellner Brothers retains much of their provocative trademark idiocy but navigates darker waters."
-Ronnie Scheib, Variety 

"Fans of mindlessly smashing things to pieces with blunt instruments will go crazy for Kid-Thing."
-Charlie Lyne, Ultra Culture 

"Absurd and wrenching coming-of-age tale."

-Peter Keough, Boston Pheonix

"There’s a real poetry to Kid-Thing."
-Noel Murry, AV Club 

"Stands out for presenting a poetic and doggedly out-there encapsulation of backwoods Americana that's occasionally transcendent."
-Eric Kohn, Indiewire 

"Backwoods weirdness with a pop-art sensibility."
-Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily 

"Like Days of Heaven on paint fumes, Kid-Thing is very much a languid, occasionally hilarious,occasionally poetic coming-of-age story."
- William Gross, The Hit List

"Grotesque, vivid, and penetrating dark comedy."
- Miranda Seigel, BULLET

"A well-crafted, gem."
- Kevin Matthews, FlickFeast
