The Wise Kids
(USA, 2011, 91 mins)
SCR: Stephen Cone
In a Baptist church community in Charleston, South Carolina, three teenage friends contemplate the next stage of life. There's the devout Laura; openly gay Tim, who is anxious to start film school in New York; and gorgeous Brea, who is undergoing a deep crisis of faith. Writer/director Stephen Cone infuses comedy into a dramatic narrative. A character-driven film with an extraordinarily talented young cast, THE WISE KIDS is respectful and earnest, and never claims to have all the answers.
