‘My Kid Could Paint That’ Trailer

'My Kid Could Paint That' Trailer

You’d be smart to check out the trailer for Amir Bar-Lev’s documentary, My Kid Could Paint That. Sony Pictures Classics will release the A&E IndieFilms co-production on October 5, and consider it highly recommended. The doc (which screens at the Toronto Film Festival next month after a Sundance premiere) is a pretty gripping portrayal of a family under fire, when 4 year-old Maria Olmstead is accused of not painting her artwork, which sells for five and six-figure amounts. Amir’s a talented documentary filmmaker, and he “lucked out” when the controversy blew up while he was making a film about the Olmstead clan. I think this doc, which is also highly accessible to a wide range of audiences, stands a chance of being on the shortlist once Oscar nominations come around.
