MATTHIAS & MAXIME
One kiss changes everything: For a student film project, Maxime is supposed to kiss his friend Matthias – and the play-acting awakens some long suppressed feelings in both men. But it couldn’t come at a worse time, as Maxime is about to go to Australia. This energetic and longing melodrama is the return to form for Canadian film-making wunderkind Xavier Dolan (MOMMY). And not only that, but playing Maxime he also gives one of this year’s most riveting acting performances.
