Who Killed Pixote?
When 11-year-old Fernando Ramos da Silva (Cassiano Carneiro) was plucked from the slums to star in the Brazilian film Pixote, he thought he'd found his ticket to fame and fortune. Sadly, he had not. This heart-wrenching drama fills in the rest of the story. Stymied in his acting career by his inability to read scripts and trapped in a brutal family situation, the former child stars gradually descends into a life of crime and, ultimately, tragedy.
