Watch Adult Adoption at Carbon Arc's season opener Feb 3-4
Carbon Arc's winter slate kicks off with a screening of this 2023 indie flick directed by buzzy filmmaker Karen Knox. It traces the story of Rosy, a former crown ward who aged out of foster care but now, at 25, craves the connection of a family. Her search for a paternal figure is at turns funny, frightening, weird and heartwarming. Already gaining comparisons to the cult classic Juno, it shows at 7pm and advance tix are available via Carbon Arc's site.
