The Kid With a Bike (2011)

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne directs Thomas Doret, Cécile de France and Jérémy Renier in this drama where a boy abandoned by his father begins to be fostered at weekends by a local hairdresser.

A gritty sweet slice of social realism. Noteworthy that one subplot lays out the realistic process of gang indoctrination of lone kids by older members pretty accurately.
