Treading Water is a modern-day coming of age love story told through the eyes of a sensitive boy who is forced to face life with a rare condition that leaves him smelling like a fish. With his strange ailment, our young hero Mica sadly grows to accept that he may never find happiness... until, as a young boy, he meets Laura who seems to not notice Mica's unique odor and wants to be his friend. Raised by his eccentric mother Sophie and his unstable father Richard who eventually abandons the family, Mica grows up in a house that's an over-the-top gaudy museum celebrating the renowned Mexican crooner Guillermo. Even as Mica's therapist Catherine gently guides him through his daily troubles it becomes more and more obvious that only his childhood crush Laura can actually cure what ails him.

Limited Releases: Following You Around

It Follows poster

We have a mixed bag of limited releases this weekend. There are some good films, like It Follows, which has good reviews, but is the wrong genre for a limited release.
