This new clip from Maxime Giroux’s “Félix and Meira” is as steamy as it is ominous. The film tells the story of two unsuspecting young lovers, Meira, played by Hadas Yaron, and Félix, played by Martin Dubreuil. Meira is a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother, and Félix is a loner mourning the death of his father. As Félix shows her what she’s been missing out on in the world, Meira is forced to choose whether to leave her current life behind. In this clip, Meira gets a glimpse of what a loving partnership could entail.
The film won Best Canadian Feature at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. It hit theaters in New York on April 17 and in Los Angeles on April 24.
