2015 Most Under-Appreciated Winner

Youth

12-19-2015Youth

If might have been different in other markets but where I live Youth opened on the very same weekend as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which gives me the impression that even in the world of art house movies about senior citizens the call of the force drowned out worthy alternatives.  Even without that distraction I suspect that Youth would have had trouble getting a foothold, it’s really more of a euro-arthouse movie than a Hollywood prestige movie and it’s unique mannerisms may have confounded the people they were selling it to.
