A thoughtful and evocative coming-of-age drama, THE WISE KIDS takes place in the transitional space between high school and college, when life seems to be all questions and no answers, and the future is scarily wide open. Set in and around a Charleston, SC Baptist church, weaving through this ensemble piece are three main characters – Brea, an introspective pastor’s daughter experiencing debilitating doubt; the hyperactive Laura, Brea’s best friend and a devout believer; and Tim, the open-hearted son of a single father, confronting his homosexuality for the first time. Tensions and buried feelings abound, as colleges are chosen and adults behave badly, as Brea, Laura and Tim attempt to hang onto what they have, all the while yearning to break free.
STRONG Parental Warning
This film is bringing some controversy with it and warnings to NOT see it! Our understanding is that it is not a Christian film, but deals with the subject of Christianity. We have not seen it yet so we cannot say for sure but wanted to write the warning just in case. The comments seem to agree with the statement. Since it’s marketed as a Christian film, it needs to remain on the database. There are a couple of reviews you may want to read before watching this film.
