12 Must-See Sundance Successes

'Rich Hill'


Rich Hill
Andrew Droz Palermo
prev/next

Summoning the heartland Americana of Robert Frank, the class sensitivity of Barbara Kopple and the eye-level empathy of Spellbound or Hoop Dreams, Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos's intimate doc won the grand jury prize for U.S. documentary. The film burrows into the interior lives of three kids growing up in rural Rich Hill, Missouri (population 1,396) and is a marvel of hard-won heartbreak – a story about boys who have the decked stacked against them and are determined to play their hands, whether they understand the game or not. —L.H.
