The Kid

The Kid ★★★★

Pure joy through and through, Chaplin is the master of the silent film for me and this is a pure example of exactly why he is so fondly cherished through all of cinema history. The titular kid they got is beyond adorable and steals near every scene, the interplay between the kid and the tramp is the lifeblood of this sweet picture, their bond is simple yet so deep that you really feel for the plucky youngster when the stakes are raised and the threat of separation beckons.
