Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominee Screenings - THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER @ Tribeca Flashpoint

Join us at Tribeca Flashpoint College (28 N Clark Street #500) at 6PM as IFP Chicago screens THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER, one of the 2017 Film Independent's Spirit Awards nominees in the category of Best First Feature.


A child’s angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious feature debut from actor Brady Corbet. A powerhouse international cast led by Robert Pattinson and Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) headlines this dark domestic nightmare. Set amidst the turmoil of World War I and its aftermath, THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER follows the young son of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him—a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of Fascism in Europe. A stylistically fearless tour-de-force, THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER reaches fever-pitch delirium thanks to ravishing cinematography and a thunderous score by legendary, boundary-pushing musician Scott Walker.
