Billie is a 15-year-old girl who fantasizes Billie Holiday as a sort of fairy godmother and plays mother to her younger brother, Nico. Meeting up with their friend Malik, they run away from home to roam free from their parents’ eye, discovering freedom and enchantment among boats and railway tracks.

MUBI's take

Described by Quentin Tarantino as one of the most powerful films of recent years, this poetic tale of childhood friendship is the latest from indie icon Alexandre Rockwell. Shot on a vivid assortment of color and black & white film stocks, Sweet Thing is a soulful hymn to hope and resilience.
