Out there at the edge of the city, amid the crumbling concrete and untended landscape, the charismatic Gregori (Vincent Cassel) has assembled a big, happy family from mistreated, grateful women and their innocent children. Or mostly innocent: the kids help pay the bills by conducting assassinations out there in The World. (They practice on their moms with paintball guns.) For their obedient efforts, they get gold stars, turns at a karaoke machine, and a warm, loving environment to grow up in. But when one of them actually starts to grow up, to step back and think about things — well, you know how kids can be at that age. Jeremy Chabriel is arresting as the increasingly uneasy youngster, and director and co-writer Ariel Kleiman proves adept at both world-building and attention-focusing. This isn't about escaping a cult, or overthrowing a system, or even asserting independence. It's about reckoning with family — the people who have loved you all your life, and who helped make you who you are. (2015) — Matthew Lickona
