The beautiful and melancholy movieFlickan (“The Girl”), opening in New York on September 17, chronicles the raw loneliness of a 10-year-old girl who is abandoned for two summer months by the self-absorbed adults around her. The movie’s serene cinematography and gentle pace ease the pain of the heartbreaking plot, and turn it into a human and compassionate tale.
