Film Review: SWEETER

Festival Reviews

A thirteen minute American film coming from director Emily Eaglin, SWEETER follows a precacious six year old as she follows her mother- questioning her about the ways of the world, and ultimately offering to switch places with her for a day.

Sweeter is a brighter, lighter take on some much heavier hitting societal issues: issues like race, income inequality and the disproportionate division of labour between the genders in a household. Not all these issues are on the surface- some are layered down underneath the warmth and joy of a loving parent child relationship and the innocent joys of childhood.

SWEETER is a cinematic romp through the eyes of a child just beginning to understand the realities of the world around them- not yet having to face them head on- but learning that they exist. In this way, SWEETER is a unique and brilliant film.
