My Kid Could Paint That

My Kid Could Paint That DVD coverAt the age of four, Marla Olmstead had already created a sensation in the art world.  Her paintings were colorful, complex, and vibrant, and some had sold for thousands of dollars.  However, not everyone was convinced that the work was hers alone.  The Sony Pictures release My Kid Could Paint That documents her amazing success and the controversy surrounding her paintings.  The film was intended to open a dialogue about modern art, but an even more complicated story is presented through interviews with Marla’s family, collectors, and art critics.  Do Marla’s paintings simply reflect a gifted little girl who loves to paint, or are they the end product of parental manipulation and fraud?  There may not be an easy answer, but you will be captivated by the questions all the same.
