description

For his first Hollywood studio production, Steven Soderbergh (whose independent debut, sex, lies, and videotape, had won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival a few years earlier) crafted this small jewel of a growing-up story. Set in St. Louis during the Depression, King of the Hill follows the daily struggles of a resourceful and imaginative adolescent (Bring It On's Jesse Bradford) who, after his tubercular mother is sent to a sanatorium, must survive on his own in a run-down hotel during his salesman father's long business trips. This evocative period piece, faithfully adapted from the memoir by the novelist A. E. Hotchner, is among the ever versatile Soderbergh's most touching and surprising films, and features a remarkable supporting cast, including Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy), singer Lauryn Hill, Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey), and Spalding Gray (Gray's Anatomy).
