Superboy

Death isn’t scary. Or, at least that’s what Daisy thinks. We follow Daisy, a teenage dreamer who longs for Americana, after her father got shot. Smothered by the people who feel the need to protect her, Daisy builds an affinity for superheroes, and grapples to decipher who the bad guys truly are. Adults prove to have less influence than cartoons in this coming of age story.

    An excellent and fascinating non-linear piece that tackles themes of death, loss, identity, the afterlife, gun violence, and the frames we lay over our children. Larissa Marten's dialogue fades seamlessly between the naturalistic and the poetic. I found myself absolutely enthralled.
