From IMDb: “A young Jewish boy somewhere in Eastern Europe seeks refuge during World War II where he encounters many different characters.”

Poster Rating: C / C / C

Review: (#1) Uncertain what the theme of this design is other than the helplessness that the child feels. It’s otherwise uninteresting. (#2) This one isn’t more or less thematically interesting, but it doesn’t improve anything either.

(#3) Looking like an old tintype photograph might somewhat appeal to the target demographic, but the design isn’t anything more special than the prior designs.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: The plot isn’t explained and the minimal dialogue doesn’t make it seem all that enticing, nor does the listing of prominent actors who appear in the film.

Oscar Prospects:

It was submitted for Oscar consideration, but wasn’t nominated. It could be the latest black-and-white nominee for Best Cinematogrpahy, but I doubt it’s going to do much at this point.
