The Kid With A Bike, a compelling, heart-felt and bold film that will toy with emotions without being overly sentimental, is released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download on 23 July by Artificial Eye.
Starring Cécile De France (Hereafter, Around the World in 80 Days), Thomas Doret (Renoir) and Jérémie Renier (I’enfant, Potiche, In Bruges), the critically acclaimed The Kid with a bike won the Grand Jury Prize at last year's Cannes Film Festival and secured a Golden Globe® nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.
It proved a hit at the UK box office becoming the Dardenne brother’s highest grossing film so far.
Cyril (newcomer Doret), almost 12, has only one plan: to find the father (Renier) who left him temporarily in a children’s home.
By chance he meets Samantha (De France), who runs a hairdressing salon and agrees to let him stay with her at weekends.
Cyril doesn’t recognize the love Samantha feels for him, a love he desperately needs to calm his rage.
The Kid with a Bike is another highly acclaimed slice of social realism from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (The Child, The Silence of Lorna).
Tackling the Dardenne’s universal themes of parenthood, trust and love as explored in their films The Promise, The Child and The Son, The Kid with a Bike comes to DVD, Blu-ray and digital download on 23 July from Artificial Eye.
