Sidewalk Stories

Directed by Charles Lane • 1989 • United States
Starring Charles Lane, Nicole Alysia, Tom Alpern

An unsung miracle of American independent filmmaking, SIDEWALK STORIES reworks Charlie Chaplin’s slapstick classic THE KID for 1980s New York. Writer-director Charles Lane casts himself as a modern-day Little Tramp, a struggling artist living on the fringes of downtown New York who becomes the protector of a young girl whose father has just been murdered. Like Chaplin, Lane blends graceful physical comedy and heartfelt emotion to create a poignant, nearly silent look at the struggles of life on the streets.
