From Sebastien Pilote, acclaimed Quebec director of The Salesman and The Auction, this lovely, poignant gem of a film follows the life of a troubled young teenage girl Leo who lives with her mother and father in a small Quebec town. Unsure of her direction in life she meets an older metalhead guitarist named Steve in a roadside diner. He teaches her guitar as they develop a quiet unspoken friendship.


Canada‘s Top Ten Film Festival returns for the 18th year with a diverse and compelling line up of features and shorts. In January and February, we will present the first part of this program. It will be continued later in March to June. This series is generously sponsored by IATSE 856 and William F. White International and CBC Radio Canada 

        

Reviews

This is the kind of film I go to film festivals to discover...Wonderful, fresh, funny and heartwarming. It's a beautiful character study of a young woman who doesn't really know what she wants, she just knows what she doesn't want. Truly impressive minimal filmmaking from a serious up-and-coming storyteller. And the way it ends is sublime.
-Alex Billington, First showing.Net
4 Stars. Karelle Tremblay, the remarkable co-star of Anne Émond’s Our Loved Ones and François Girard’s Hochelaga, Land Of Souls, holds the screen as confidently as Ellen Page in Juno or Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird. - Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
