Writer and director Melissa Miller discusses her debut feature, All These Small Moments, including what inspired her to tell the story through the eyes of a young boy and her experience of taking her film from script to screen, working with both seasoned actors – ’80s star Molly Ringwald and Brian D’Arcy James – and younger actors such as breakout star Brendan Meyer.

All These Small Moments: A boy faces the first upsets of adolescence: his parents are on the verge of divorce, a schoolmate is courting him, a young woman who crosses on the bus lights up his fantasies. And then there’s the little brother, the friends, Brooklyn, the life that changes. A feverish tale of training, which looks to the cinema of John Hughes (the presence of Molly Ringwald in the role of the mother confirms it). With Jemima Kirk (Girls) and Brian D’Arcy James (The Spotlight Case).
