Members’ Screening: Close

Directed by Lukas Dhont
104 Minutes | Rated PG-13

Leo and Remi, two thirteen-year-old best friends, have spent every moment of their summer together. As the season ends, a new school year brings with it a new set of social pressures that tests their intimate, seemingly unbreakable bond. An enthralling, breathless visual style plunges viewers into the exhilarating, emotionally uncertain world of adolescence with immersive, devastating clarity. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Lukas Dhont’s second film is a transformative and unforgettable portrait of the intersection of friendship and love, identity and independence, and heartbreak and healing.

Close won both the Gold Q-Hugo and Silver Hugo Jury Award at the 58th Chicago International Film Festival.
