Synopsis: 

More than ninety years after its premiere, Charlie Chaplin’s first feature remains one of the most genuinely heartwarming films ever made. The story of an abandoned child taken in by Chaplin’s indelible Tramp, The Kid—the artist’s choice in our Geraldine Chaplin tribute—is a moving portrait of accidental parentage and dogged devotion.
