Little Fugitive

Little Fugitive. An adventure in 1950s New York City seen through a child’s eyes. It’s got some genuinely charming moments, though they’re more rooted in the nature of children than any wonders of plot or technique. The camera is low and so are the stakes, but it forces you to take the kid’s perspective. Nicely done for most of its 75 minutes. You can see the influence on the French New Wave that followed overseas.
