THE UNSPEAKABLE ACT
Dan Sallitt United States, 2012
A tender coming-of-age story from Dan Sallitt (Fourteen), The Unspeakable Act lovingly recalls the humanism of Éric Rohmer’s films. Taking on a difficult subject with rare sincerity, Sallitt allows his characters to develop subtly and with warmth. Watch out for Tallie Medel’s mighty portrayal.
