With all the attention foisted upon Xavier Dolan‘s “Mommy” last year, another film by a Quebecois director was unfortunately overshadowed. Stéphane Lafleur‘s “Tu Dors Nicole” has screened at Cannes (as part of the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight) has earned strong reviews, but didn’t get the same boost as Dolan’s Jury Prize winning effort. You’ll get a chance to check it out this summer when the movie rolls out to cinemas, and a new trailer has arrived.
Starring Julianne Cote, Catherine St-Laurent, Marc-Andre Grondin, Francis La Haye, Simon Larouche, Godefroy Reding and Fanny Mallette, the story follows Nicole and Veronique, who find their breezy summer plans interrupted by the arrival of Nicole’s older brother Remi and his bandmates. The movie completely bowled over our critic in Cannes last year, who wrote in his A-grade review that the film is “executed with such charm and skill in every gorgeous frame that I walked out completely and totally smitten.”
“Tu Dors Nicole” opens on May 29th.
