Twelve-year-old Niilas is not having a good summer. Instead of spending it at home in Belgium with his dad, he’s being sent to visit Sweden, where his mother and her family work herding reindeer. Niilas has trouble adjusting to the rugged outdoor lifestyle: he refuses to talk, threatens to run away, and acts out against his two half-siblings and stepfather. It takes a brush with death (and a stern talking-to from his stepsister, Sunna`) to shake him out of his petulant mood and convince him to give life in Sweden a chance. Niilas starts to stretch his comfort zone and, by the end of the film, has a chance to make amends for his destructive actions—if only he can muster up the courage to embrace the unfamiliar and conquer his fears. With its gorgeous scenery and understated acting, CLOUDBOY ends up being a touching look at the healing power of unconditional love. (In Dutch, Swedish, and Sami with subtitles)
