Movie Info

Older (Gabriel Croft), a young man of 20 years, escapes incarceration and seeks out his little brother, Younger, age 10 (Hale Lytle). Clearly a bad influence, Older gets them involved in the 'accidental' killing of a young girl and makes things worse by fleeing the scene of the crime. They hide out until their mother can come to help, but rather than turn them over to the police, she aids in their escape. On the road, they have a series of run-ins with estranged family and unusual characters, all of whom remind them just how out-on-a-limb things have become for the ill-prepared duo. (C) Anthology

  • Some of the deadpan moments and more fraught exchanges don't really come off. But all in all, it's one curious, and furious, escapade.

  • Even in its longueurs Young Bodies yields beauty and surprise, and there are inklings of some grand conception, even among scenes that feel haphazardly chosen ...

  • Anarchic surface behaviors wear out their welcome in Andrew T. Betzer's intriguing but aimless debut feature.

  • Violence and tenderness, piety and crime unite in a terrifying tangle of stunted emotions.

    Feb 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • In the best tradition of Huckleberry Finn, both brothers are gullible dummies providing an entree to various American eccentrics, and like that book, Betzer's movie (2014) is a crazy quilt whose regional charms obscure a ramshackle plot.

    Feb 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • I struggled with parts of the second half, but the film is worth the struggle; Betzer's up to something visually, and he has a ripe career ahead of him. At least I hope he does.
