You wanna die because you’re sad? That’s dumb.
Set over the course of one long New Jersey summer, Hide Your Smiling Faces delivers a dreamlike portrait of adolescence told through the eyes of two brothers—nine-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and fourteen-year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson). The film centers on their struggle to understand the mysterious death of one of Tommy's friends and to deal with their own impending adulthood and mortality.
