This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $9.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

This riveting, Cannes-selected #MeToo drama from debut filmmaker Charlène Favier follows the relationship between a teenage ski prodigy and her predatory instructor, played by frequent Dardenne brothers collaborator Jérémie Renier. In a beautiful breakthrough performance, Noée Abita plays 15-year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps who has been accepted to an elite ski club known for producing some of the country’s top professional athletes. Taking a chance on his new recruit, ex-champion turned coach Fred decides to mold Lyz into his shining star despite her lack of experience. Under his influence, she will have to endure more than the physical and emotional pressure of the training. Will Lyz’s determination help her escape Fred’s exploitative grip?

Reviews

Snaps across your face like a blast of cold mountain air... Shot with the kineticism of bodies in motion and the sensitivity of an early Céline Sciamma film.
– David Ehrlich, Indiewire
Impeccably acted and beautifully shot.
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
This tense, bone-chilling first feature... looks at how teenage girls are often punished for their boldness.
– Simran Hans, The Observer
