This year’s French-language film choice is a remarkable coming-of-age tale that explores themes of loneliness and connection. We follow the daily life of 12-year-old Mylia and the prejudices of her high school in Centre-du-Québec. Everything feels make-or-break for her, whether it’s nervously joining in with a group of drunk teens dancing at a house party or working up the courage to defend her new friend Jimmy. The eternal choice in navigating high school politics – to conform or to rebel?
