Today’s DVD donation? “Cocoon” (no, not THAT “Cocoon”) comes to Maitland

I reviewed this German coming-of-age import back in June, and the fact that June is “Pride Month” should tell you this one is about a teen discovering her sexuality, and that it’s not necessarily binary.

Writer-director Leonie Krippendorff’s drama is more poignant than titillating or eye-opening, just a very well done and “universal” story of puberty and coping with it.

I’m guessing Maitland’s ancient and esteemed public library and its liberal populace would love to see it. Thanks to Film Movement for providing the DVD.

MovieNation, the cinema’s Johnny Appleseed, spreading fine films far and wide one film, one public library at a time.
