Movie Info

When technophile Sarah Sparks (Anna Margaret Hollyman) becomes pregnant, her uncertainties about motherhood trigger an impulsive road trip to the source of her anxiety: her long-estranged mother living far away and off-the-grid. A SXSW premiere and winner of the Sloan Feature Film Prize, Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson co-direct this comic coming-of-parenthood tale for the internet age. -- (C) Official Site

This is a small film and knows exactly how to be a small film. Like many New Yorker short stories, its purpose is to strike a particular note and allow it to reverberate.

Even at a lean 73 minutes, this flimsy road movie feels at least 43 minutes too long.

Small, Beautifully Moving Parts isn't always completely elegant about getting its point across, but its imperfections are only human - a quality, as Sarah eventually realizes, that can have its own appeal.

Audience Reviews for Small, Beautifully Moving Parts

There's a big difference between commenting on the zeitgeist and simply acknowledging it ---this film certainly does the latter, while the former remains a bit beyond it's grasp.
