Set over one summer, the film follows precocious 6-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.
"Bad Lucky Goat" is a film made by Colombians but I didn't notice a single word of Spanish in the movie. It's actually set on some unnamed island that is a lot like Jamaica and they speak a form of Creole (it's absolutely nothing like Haitian Creole). Regardless, you'll find yourself reading subtitles and I think it's worth it.
The story concerns Corn (short for 'Cornelius') and his sister (her name isn't listed on IMDb...I think it might have been Lisa) as they go on a small errand that turns out to be a lengthy and unpredictable adventure. It all starts with them destroying the family's truck, as they're bickering so much they don't see a goat walking into their path. Exactly where it goes next...well, just see it for yourself.
There isn't a lot of deep meaning here...just a nice road trip movie with lots of Caribbean culture and charm. Well worth seeing.
