Summer 1993

In Carla Simón’s touching autobiographical film, six-year-old Frida looks on in silence as the last objects from her recently deceased mother’s apartment in Barcelona are placed in boxes.

Although her aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Anna welcome her with open arms, it’s only very slowly that Frida begins to get used to her new home in the countryside.

Punctuated by moments of youthful exuberance and mature ruminations, this coming of age drama, set amongst summery hues, is an extraordinarily moving snapshot of being a child in an adult world, anchored by flawless performances by its two young stars.

"Some creatures are able to grow new limbs. Frida, given more than half a chance after demanding it, achieves something no less remarkable. She grows new joy and hope."

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"An extraordinary and beautiful work of grief and memory."

Kyle Turner, Village Voice

"Ultimately, this is a memorable look at our desire to love and feel safe, to connect and belong - and the unexpected ways in which families can reshape and grow."

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
