April 12th - 18th


A Film By Olivia Silver 

A coming-of-age story set in a vast, cross-country landscape, Arcadia begins when twelve-year-old Greta’s dad wakes her up before dawn and crams his three kids into a dented station wagon. They set off on a 3,000 mile journey from the New England woods to the California desert, as Dad tells enchanting stories, paints pictures of a California paradise, and assures the kids that Mom will soon join them. Greta believes him at first, mesmerized by the strange new scenery and clinging to her stuffed bunny Harrison. Older sister Caroline nonchalantly accepts his stories, more focused on the boyfriend she’s leaving behind. And nine-year-old Nat, too young to suspect a thing, is eager to see the epic Grand Canyon.

Arcadia stars celebrated actor and Oscar-nominee John Hawkes and features unforgettable performances by child actors Ryan Simpkins, her real-life brother Ty Simpkins and Kendall Toole. Taking home the Crystal Bear for Best Feature at the Berlin Film Festival in 2012, Arcadia went on to win awards at multiple film festivals around the world, including the Adrienne Shelly Award for Excellence in Filmmaking at the Nantucket Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize at the Cine Junior Film Festival in Paris.

Arcadia has been called "a richly observed family drama that you will long remember" by the Sarasota Insider, while the Northwest Film Forum called Arcadia a "beautifully scripted story that lends a new and somber weight to tales of the American highway," and Fretts on Film said: "Arcadia feels like a minor American classic, and Hawkes' work stands with the finest American anti-star turns of the '70s." Says The Film Yap of writer/director Olivia Silver: "This is one new filmmaker to watch - someone who intrinsically understands how to tell a story, when to reveal and when to pull back, when to punch the audience in the gut and when to let them find their own way."
