A modern silent, Sidewalk Stories is Charles Lane’s 1980s New York-set homage to Chaplin’s The Kid. A humorous, moving, and poignant retelling of the classic, it’s played out almost entirely without dialogue, featuring Lane himself as the lead. But it’s Nicole Alysia as ‘the kid’ whose charm and charisma steal the show.
Presented in partnership with Scalarama.
