Arcadia is a 2012 American drama film written and directed by Olivia Silver, produced by A Poisson Rouge Pictures and DViant Films. It won the Crystal Bears, Generation Kplus at 2012 Berlinale and the Grand Prize at the Cine Junior Festival.
Twelve-year-old Greta's dad Tom is moving the kids cross-country, promising a California paradise and packing half the household into a dented station wagon. Mom is supposed to join them later. But as they travel through forests, plains and deserts, stopping at fast food joints, shoddy motels, and a poor substitute for the Grand Canyon, Greta gradually realizes that her family is falling apart.
Arcadia scored highly with critics, and played to sold out theaters at the Berlin Film Festival. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times wrote: "Ms. Silver’s ability to translate the liminal into cinematic terms, to catch those moments between innocence and knowing, childhood and adulthood, unforgiving and forgiving, makes her someone to watch".
