Feels like one idea stretched into a modest, colorful display. But what a sweet display it is.

Eleonore Faucher, first-time director (and co-writer) of the French charmer Sequins, is well aware of Neymark's allure and sees to it that the young woman is seldom out of the frame.

Becomes a quiet tribute to friendship, and to the way that something torn can be made perfect again.
