Spotlight on homegrown cinema

Marine is 11; her sister Océane is 16. When his life is tragically cut short, their father leaves them with a grieving mother and a pile of debts. Each reacts differently: Océane goes wildly off on a tangent, taking an older first lover, while Marine takes refuge in a fantasy world, speaking to ghosts… Written by Chloé Cinq-Mars, this first feature from David Uloth is a poignant family drama, poetic and moving, with a five-star cast and two riveting young leads — particularly the fiery Éléonore Loiselle, whose androgynous Océane, insolent, thieving, is utterly compelling.Q&A with the cast and crew on October 8th
