MARBLES (2022) cover image
I love this film. It's a perfect fit for KIDS FIRST! Marbles is a very interesting and engaging story with a superhero element.

The storyline follows a kid named Adam who has a superpower of super speed and his mom helps him hone his superpowers, while teaching him how to be a superhero. He learns a valuable lesson while doing an exercise with marbles where he has to catch all the marbles before they hit the ground and then, she ups it up by having him do the same thing without using his sight.

The storyline is very engaging as we watch the character doing his superhero training with the marbles. The camerawork and editing are all excellent. The way they create the illusion of Adam moving at super-fast speed is well executed; it is so believable. Lighting, visuals, sound - all contribute to an excellent production. What I really love though, is the relationship between the mom and the boy, Adam. She clearly has a handle on how to train him to use his superpower and, in the end congratulates him for "solving the impossible." The ending, when the dad speaks up, leads us to think there might be a sequel. I hope so.

The message of this short film is that, even though things may seem impossible, there is always a way.

I give Marbles 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 through 18, plus adults. By Avalon N. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
