MATTHIAS ET MAXIME
It’s a cottage weekend like any other, until a young filmmaker convinces her brother and another boy to kiss for a film she is making. That simple kiss has unexpected consequences for Matthias, a young lawyer, and his childhood friend, Maxime. An official selection at the Cannes Festival, this film by Xavier Dolan is a stylish and emotional meditation on masculinity. Along for the ride is an impressive cast of friends and actors, including Gabriel D’Almeida Freitas, Pier-Luc Funk, Catherine Brunet and, of course, Anne Dorval.
