The Marquee Film Festival: Tu Dors Nicole (2014)

Film
Sunday, November 15
3:30 - 5 pm
Cost: Free
Nicole wanders her sleepy suburbs with her best friend, looking to make her summer more than a collection of strange non-starters. In this dreamy comedy, Nicole works a dead end job and is pursued by a 12 year old boy with the voice, and poetic tendencies, of a 30 year old romantic.

Canada | 93 min | NR | DCP | Dir.Stéphane Lafleur

Nicole is adrift after college graduation, working a dead-end summer job in her small Quebec hometown and spending evenings with her best friend, Véronique. When her older brother Remi returns with his bandmates in tow, disrupting the girls' half-baked summer, it becomes clear to Nicole that something must and will change. Shot in luminous black and white and infused with a sultry melancholy, Tu Dors Nicole brilliantly captures that stage where the fading yet familiar attachments of childhood still seem far more appealing, precious, and real than the sterility of the grown-up world. (C) Kino

"The film skillfully portrays youthful malaise, bewilderment and unexpected hope. And did I mention that the whole thing is pretty hilarious, too?"- Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
