Two 13-year-old boys, Léo (Eden Dambrine) and Rémi (Gustav De Waele), share an intimate friendship. They lean on each other physically just as much as they do emotionally. As they enter high school, though, classmates begin to question their closeness and their sexuality. The judgment of others drives a rift between the two boys and leads to heart-shattering consequences. This Grand Prix winner at the 2022 Cannes International Film Festival and Academy Award-nominee for Best International Feature is a raw, phenomenally acted drama of youth in crisis. It has catapulted Belgian filmmaker Lukas Dhont onto the world stage as a writer and director of tender instincts and incredible facility with young talent.

“What Dhont understands, in short, is how kinetic the rites of passage are—how growing pains are expressed not in words, however therapeutic, but in rushes of activity.”
