Damien, the son of a military family, lives in southwestern France with his mother, a doctor, while his father is away in the Central African Republic. As a gay teenager, Damien is given a hard time by Tom, a boy at school from a mountain, farming background, whose adoptive mother falls ill. The repulsion and violence they display to one another takes on a darker shade when Damien’s mother decides to take in Tom to live with them. Written and directed by Andre Techine (Wild Reeds). “This vibrant portrait feels like something of a revelation… this well-observed collaboration with co-writer Celine Sciamma is Techine’s strongest film in years.”—Peter Debruge, Variety
