In a rural Senegalese village poised at the outer edge of the modern world, a teenage girl hatches a secret plan to rescue her 11-year-old sister from an arranged marriage.
Tall as the Baobab Tree considers every point of view in its drama, and avoids being preachy, letting the truth of the scenario speak for itself.
An appealing film that tackles the alarming subject of forced child marriage, but unfortunately director Jeremy Teicher struggles with extracting natural performances from his cast of local villagers.
Simple, swift and a little sad, this debut is far from perfect, but shows real promise.
