Jill and Joy's Winter
JILL AND JOYS WINTER
2015, 77 min, Sami Keski-Vähälä, Finland (live action)
Jill and Joy, both 9-year-olds, have lives like other little girls, except that they might be a little happier than most, as they get to live in their own house made just for them. One December evening, a small car, barely the size of a shoebox, pulls up in front their house, and a teensy-weensy family gets out. The McTiny family, having just lost their home, move in with Jill and Joy but soon find out that not all big people have good intentions towards them. Jill and Joy's Winter is based on a beloved book by the same name by the Finnish writer Marjatta Kurenniemi.
