From Switzerland comes this dramatic fable about a young keyboard virtuoso whose overprotective parents have ambitious musical plans for the kid. Teo Gheorghiu is our 12-year-old piano, chess, math, etc. prodigy, an intense nerd who can't quite figure out what to do in life. The often manipulative film wants to be a crowd-pleasing tale about letting kids be kids, but the overly talented protagonist borders on the creepy. In English and Swiss German with English subtitles. 123 minutes PG.
