Eight (1998) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1999 , Fiction)
Director: Stephen Daldry

Meet Jonathon, an eight year old soccer fanatic. Living in a strange new town, he struggles to explain away the absence of his father as he finally comes to terms with his situation. A beautifully sensitive portrayal of innocence and loss, poetically framed against a back drop of a little boy's resilience, his reliance on dreams and make believe.
