Connecitucut Film Festival

Wondrous Oblivion

 

 

Eleven-year-old David Wiseman lives with the singular dream of being a cricket star, but much to the dismay and ridicule of his classmates, he is all passion and no skill. The son of a traditional Jewish family living in the racial and cultural turbulence of 1960s South London, David and his world are shaken by the unexpected arrival of the Samuels, a lively and big- hearted Jamaican family.

When Dennis Samuels (Delroy Lindo, THE CIDER HOUSE RULES) erects a cricket net in his backyard, David is ecstatic. However, David’s enthusiasm is not shared by all in his racially-charged community and the Wisemans find themselves forced to choose between aligning with the prejudices of the neighborhood and sticking by their new-found friends. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Morrison, WONDROUS OBLIVION is a warm-hearted, coming-of-age story – a portrait of the importance of family, tolerance and standing up for what is right.

"…genuine sweetness."
- All Movie Guide

"…feel-good film, fresh and endearing."
- Movie Vault

"A charming coming-of-age comedy drama that comes over as a cross between BILLY ELLIOT and FAR FROM HEAVEN."
