FILM ON:

"The Adytum" is a coming-of-age story about a girl who learns to read under unlikely circumstances. Dialogue in a constructed language is interwoven with music to emphasize the character's awkward struggle to understand the language that disempowers her unique family.

True, he needs to learn a completely new sound vocabulary—that strange world of Gypsy music—but the musician can appl... more
