Billy The Kid
Jennifer Venditti makes an astonishing directorial debut with BILLY THE KID. A New York City-based casting director, Venditti discovered the 15-year-old Billy Price while working on a short film in Maine. Misunderstood by seemingly everyone around him, Venditti decided to return to the small town with a camera to follow Billy around for a week and let him tell his own story. The result is an exhilarating work of nonfiction that is both heartbreaking and hilarious. Billy has been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, yet Venditti doesnt call attention to this diagnosis. Instead, she follows him in a vrit fashion and allows him to speak for himself. And speak he does. A well-read, thoughtful young man, Billy unleashes quotes and references that will leave viewers dazed and amused (his spectrum covers everything from Robert Frost to the band Kiss). Billys mother realizes that her son is a special case, and she treats him with patience and understanding that is rare and noble. While the entire film is a revelation, it is Billys courtship of a fellow outsider, Heather, that takes the film to another level completely. Watching these extraordinary characters experience such universal stomach-punching emotions is a wonder to behold. It is here where BILLY THE KID transcends its seemingly breezy, innocent atmosphere and becomes a profound meditation on the raucous emotional tornado that is adolescence. It is impossible to watch BILLY THE KID and not cringe with recognition
