"The Boy Who Smells Like Fish"

The 30th anniversary edition of the Miami International Film Festival (March 1-10) has announced its full slate, which this year includes 45 films that will be making their world, international, North American and U.S. premieres.

World premieres include "The Boy Who Smells Like Fish" starring Zoe Kravitz and Douglass Smith about a lonely boy with a weird condition, "Eenie Meenie Miney Moe," a crime drama about a two truck driver from the team behind MIFF11's "Magic City Memoirs," "Sanitarium" starring Robert Englund, Malcom McDowell, and Loud Diamond Phillips in three separate stories set in a mental asylum, and "Marriage (Matrimonio)" loosely based on James Joyce's "Ulysses" starring Cecilia Roth and Dario Grandinetti.

The festival will open with Morgan Neville's "Twenty Feet From Stardom," which turns the spotlight on the many unknown backup singers behind famed musicans like Stevie Wonder and Mick Jagger. Maiken Baird and Michelle Major's "Venus and Serena," a revealing look at the tennis champion sisters will close the festival on March 10.

    The trailer of The Boy Who Smells Like Fish is inviting with top-notch renowned actors who make their characters real and lovable. It appears to be a viable blend of drama and comedy that I wish to experience. The artwork creates a “unique” environment in which a powerful struggle of self-acceptance unfolds in a beautiful special love story. I am very much looking forward to seeing this film!
