French-Canadian prodigy Xavier Dolan (I Killed My Mother) returns with a hyper-stylized ode to the pleasure and pain of young love. Dolan costars with the devastatingly stylish Monia Chokri as best friends vying for the affections of a beautiful but elusive Adonis named Nicholas. Swooning romanticism is offset by a wry sense of humor, displaying a mastery of form that marks Dolan as one of the most promising young talents working today.
