THE FIREFLIES ARE GONE
LA DISPARITION DES LUCIOLES
2018, 96 min, Canada, Dir: Sébastien Pilote

As her high school graduation approaches, high-spirited 18-year-old Léo (Karelle Tremblay) can’t wait to get out of her drab small town in Quebec’s hinterland. Tired of her mother’s nagging, her stepfather’s relentless and reactionary right-wing opinions and her absent father, Léo is restless, alienated and bored. That frustration changes, however, when she meets Steve (Pierre-Luc Brillant), a quietly charismatic 30-something guitar teacher who still lives in his mother’s basement. Taking guitar lessons from Steve proves to be a catalyst for change in Léo, and their unlikely friendship will transform both forever. Winner of Best Canadian Feature Film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. In French with English subtitles.
