Run to the Beach
Cousins Sam and Happy (Maisha Kanna and Lil’li Latisha) used to be close, but they’ve drifted apart. The two end up going on a roadtrip together with Sam’s mother Uci (Marsha Timothy) all across Java, eventually seeing the world through new eyes.
From director-producer duo Riri Riza and Mira Lesmana, who gave Indonesians beloved children’s films Rainbow Troops and Sherina’s Adventure, comes their first children’s film in 10 years. The bright family drama plays on the tension between urban and rural Indonesia, personified by two young characters: Sam – the hyperactive surfer girl, and Happy – the English-speaking Instagrammer. The film is smart enough to not quite take sides, building its conflict not just on the simple signposts of their differences, but on deeper tensions that arise as they continue on this journey of self-discovery. Riza’s unique style of shooting road movies like 3 Days to Forever delivers the same visual treats.
