    • Synopsis
    • IRIS is a hauntingly beautiful and unusual coming-of-age tale, filmed on 35mm. The superb acting and directed matches the high quality of the writing. Touching, yet not overly emotional, the story draws you in from the first moment on and transports you to 1890 with IRIS, abandoned by her artist mother, discovers the joys of friendship and family in a remote, exotic island. It's a story of the human condition and how even deep prejudices can be overcome by the simple act of kindness and the willingness to strive for individuality.
 A quality family movie in the best tradition of the word.
