Lawrence Anyways

Xavier Dolan. Canada, France. 2012. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 159'.

A man confesses to his girlfriend that he's a woman trapped in a man's body. Dolan's third film shows a surprising maturity. He portrays with sensitivity the challenge the couple faces in redefining their love in this new reality frowned upon by family and society. Set in the 1990s to a soundtrack that perfectly, the film is just the right size for its ambitions with ace performances and precise and stylized filming.
