Stand Clear of the Closing Doors

United States | 2013 | Sam Fleischner

Stand Clear of the Closing Doors

A 13-year-old Mexican-American boy with Asperger's syndrome wanders into the NYC subway system, losing himself for days in the cacophony, strangeness, and menace of the underground. Back home in Rockaway Beach, his undocumented mother frantically tries to locate him—as Hurricane Sandy approaches the city. This acclaimed, impressionistic, suspenseful indie drama may one day be remembered as one of the great New York movies. "Critic's Pick…A small miracle of a film." -The NY Times.
