A living, breathing, Fudgsicle-sticky document of New York City in the 1950s, this wistful, sweet-spirited independent drama about a 7-year-old on his own at Coney Island managed to simultaneously influence the French New Wave, American cinema verite, and just about every independent production for decades to come.
