It’s this knowing, personal weight that pervades Calogero Carucci’s film, Moving in 2008, the closing night feature of this year’s Brooklyn Film Festival. Based on his own family drama during the 2008 recession, Carucci tells a very heavy story that is honest and relatable for anyone who’s ever experienced poverty. It’s also a wonderful showcase for young talent, as the main child cast has to shoulder a lot of stuff as actors that no child should have to endure.
