In 2001, one of the most controversial writers in Quebec history, Nelly Arcan, published Putain (Whore), a tale of prostitution based on her own experience in the trade and it caused a sensation in literary circles. Émond’s onscreen Nelly is a composite of Arcan’s many personas and fictional characters and is brought to life in an astonishing performance by Mylène Mackay.

Reviews

Anne Émond’s Nelly will haunt you...Mylène Mackay plays all these characters (save for the youngest) in a tour de force performance. She is sultry, poised... saucy and strong. As the shards of Arcan’s tragic life collide, it’s impossible to leave without the impact of Nelly embedded in one’s mind, haunted for days to come.
