ROCCA VERÄNDERT DIE WELT
2019, Warner Bros., 101 min, Germany, Dir: Katja Benrath

This crowd-pleaser from director Katja Benrath follows an 11-year-old protagonist whose unshakeable optimism and nonconformist spirit make good on the film’s title. Rocca (Luna Maxeiner, adorable in her first film role) is practically an orphan for much of the year while her astronaut father is away on an orbiting space station. Her parentless lifestyle is hardly an obstacle, however, as she navigates school and bullies with ease and has a positive effect on every person (and squirrel) that crosses her path. Featuring Fahri Yardim as a tender homeless man named Caspar, the film took home the Outstanding Children Award from the German Film Awards and is guaranteed fun for the whole family.
