Film Presentation:
Regizoarea Kimberly Reed se incumeta sa faca un portret familiei sale, fara concesii, insa absolut captivant. Intorcandu-se acasa in oraselul natal pentru reuniunea cu fostii colegi de liceu, Reed spera sa se impace cu fratele ei adoptat. Insa, pe parcurs, Fii ratacitori descopera o legatura de sange cu Orson Welles si Rita Hayworth, rivalitati intre frati si neprevazute intorsaturi de situatie. Reed dezvaluie nu doar momentele intime ale familiei, dar si o privire epica. Intrebari legate de identitate, traume si iubire sunt explorate fara efort pe masura ce personajele isi dezvaluie vietile in fata camerei de filmat. Frust, tulburator si provocator, Fii ratacitori este o examinare emotionanta a eforturilor facute de familie pentru a-si accepta trecutul si prezentul. Va va deschide mintea si inima.
