Nominated for an Academy Award for best motion picture story and winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival, The Little Fugitive follows a seven-year old boy named Joey (Richie Andrusco) who runs away to Coney Island after being tricked into thinking he's killed his older brother Lennie (Rickie Brewster). Joey's adventures and Lennie's search for his lost little brother make for a charming adventure that chronicles 1950s New York in perfect detail.
From the view under the boardwalk to a summer storm that clears the beach, Engel's camera never fails to register magical, atmospheric moments.

"Our New Wave would never have come into being if it hadn't been for the young American Morris Engel, who showed us the way to independent production with his fine movie, Little Fugitive" -François Truffaut
