A seven-year-old girl longs for a bicycle so that she can be more like the other kids in her Norwegian town, but her embarrassingly unconventional, modernist architect parents see things differently. Academy Award-winning animator Torill Kove weaves memory and fantasy together in this droll and charming look at the pain of childhood alienation. Me and My Moulton is nominated for a 2015 Academy Award in the Animated Short Film category. 

Advisory: very brief glimpses of non-explicit nudity
