Peters’ inclusion of other perspectives, as well as the universality of much of the film’s message, makes it an emotionally moving and thought-provoking 72 minutes for viewers of all backgrounds.

Fragile World maintains a childlike quality throughout, from August’s self-proclaimed Peter Pan complex to Rosalie’s haircut. Even as the film explores mental illness and homelessness, the innocence displayed by its characters and the bright, sunny shots emphasize its message of finding hope in the darkest of situations.
