The 400 Blows ★★★★★

I think people overlook how hard it is to be a kid. All kids at one point feel unwanted, unloved, or uncared for. It's universal, which is why this movie is so incredible. It takes something as simple as a broken household and makes it for everyone, something anyone can relate to. 

The acting and score in particular are outstanding. The cinematography is gorgeous, and you can tell it has inspired many filmmakers today. Many aspects of this film also reminded me of Mommy and I Killed My Mother, both Xavier Dolan films (which is a great thing). I honestly am in love with this film and it's true, brutal, and heartbreaking story.
