Synopsis

Not since Ellen Page astonished in Juno has a young Canadian acting talent crafted such a searing and original performance as does Karelle Tremblay in this emotionally effective drama. She’s Leo, a restless, cynical, world-weary high school student—certainly too smart and too rebellious for her small Québécois town. Director-writer Pilote provides a fresh view of teenage angst and the possibilities and trials of young adulthood.
