In 12 and Holding, acclaimed director Michael Cuesta powerfully and honestly portrays the complexities of children losing their innocence and the adults struggling to guide them. Feeling the pull of childlike emotions and developing adult instincts, three kids navigate their desires for independence and needs for nurturing and safety. When a tragedy befalls one of their peers, they grapple with a sudden awareness of mortality, contemplations of vengeance, and a very first crush. Featuring stunningly precise performances by its young stars (Conor Donovan, Jesse Camacho, and Zoe Weizenbaum) and supporting cast (Annabelle Sciorra, Linus Roache, Jayne Atkinson), 12 and Holding is an unforgettable examination of that one moment when the world changes forever.
