Plot Summary

Sarah Sparks is pregnant and feeling wholly ambivalent, despite her boyfriend's pure enthusiasm. A committed tech-geek, she fears she is more interested in ultrasound technology than in what's being ultra-sounded. When her sister lures her to L.A. for what ends up being a terrorizing baby shower, Sarah keeps her rental van and hits the road in search of the source of her anxiety - her estranged mother, now living off the grid. Small, Beautifully Moving Parts takes a comic and poignant look at one woman's coming-of-parenthood in the age of technology.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Even at a lean 73 minutes, this flimsy road movie feels at least 43 minutes too long. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 10, 2012

Rotten: Unfortunately, its tale is so slight and simple that it ... fails to say anything particularly poignant about life. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, May 8, 2012

Fresh: Small, Beautifully Moving Parts isn't always completely elegant about getting its point across, but its imperfections are only human - a quality, as Sarah eventually realizes, that can have its own appeal. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, May 11, 2012

Fresh: "Small, Beautifully Moving Parts" is a tiny, sweet gem. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, May 10, 2012
