The Kid

The Kid ★★★★★

Whoah, I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it is! Equal parts funny and touching, this not only strays away from the typical 'Guy meets girl but they can't be together because... poverty/class issues/other' formula that was predominant in silent pictures, but builds itself from the relationship of the Tramp and the titular Kid, who share an undeniable chemistry. The slapstick and drama are carefully balanced out, making an almost perfect, short, sweet little film.
