Children of Heaven (1997) In this Oscar-nominated Iranian drama from filmmaker Majid Majidi, a young boy (Amir Farrokh Hashemian) accidentally loses his sister's (Bahare Seddiqi) shoes and must share his own sneakers with her in a sort of relay while each attends school at different times during the day. The boy ultimately enters a much-publicized foot race in hopes of placing third and taking home the prize: a new pair of sneakers.
A young boy who is constantly being bullied at school makes friends with the new girl in the neighborhood. When strange disappearances and murders start happening in the town, all signs point to the new girl and her father, who only come out at night.
