Acclaimed actress Mélanie Laurent takes the director’s chair for this emotionally seductive and hugely affecting drama about an adolescent friendship perched on the brink of obsession.
When Charlie (Joséphine Japy) – an attractive but self-doubting 17-year-old – meets the charismatic, forthright and unruly Sarah (star on the rise Lou de Laâge), they immediately form an intense and exhilarating bond. Sarah offers both companionship and support for Charlie at a time when she desperately needs it, while her unstable mother (the superb Isabelle Carré) copes badly with impending divorce. But their inseparable, idyllic existence soon steers into dangerous territory.
Skillfully adapted from the controversial, best-selling novel by Anne-Sophie Brasme, Laurent’s gorgeously shot, highly refined thriller delves into the deep and dark connections that make youthful relationships so quixotic and powerful. The stellar performances of her actors – completely submerged under the skin of their characters – delivery extraordinary impact as the film builds to its breathtaking dénouement.
This film is not rated. It's in French with English subtitles. Movie time is 91 minutes.
