Set in and around a South Carolina baptist church, weaving through The Wise Kids are three main characters—Brea, an introspective pastor’s daughter experiencing debilitating doubt, Laura, Brea’s best friend and a devout believer, and Tim, who is confronting his homosexuality for the first time.

Our take

Drawn from Stephen Cone’s upbringing in the South Carolinian Baptist church, this tender drama is awash with adolescent doubts about sexual identity and faith. The empathetic, non-judgmental portrayal of a religious community and its rarely-seen complexities renders this a special, moving watch.
