Join us for a special National Canadian Film Day presentation of CIFF 2019 selection, JEUNE JULIETTE!
Fourteen-year-old Juliette lives in the country with her father and her older brother. When Juliette was younger, her mother left the family to pursue her career in New York; from that moment, Juliette started to gain weight. But that doesn’t stop her from being vivacious, funny and unrepentantly rebellious.
Juliette has big dreams: she wants to throw the best parties, move to New York to live with her mother, and date the most gorgeous guy in her school, an older boy who is about to graduate. In short, she wants everything she can’t have—which sometimes makes her forget to appreciate those who really love her. We follow this brazen and endearing girl during her hectic last few weeks before summer vacation, and watch as she does some growing up—but not too much.
Quebec director Anne Émond’s (NELLY, NUIT #1) semi-autobiographical story is a refreshing, comedic and loveable experience from beginning to end, in this truly unique coming-of-age story.
Now in its eighth year, National Canadian Film Day (NCFD) has taken root as our largest annual celebration of Canadian culture. It is about giving Canadians an opportunity to gather together (in person or virtually) and celebrate the incredible achievements of our nation’s filmmakers. Every year hundreds of screenings take place on every conceivable platform and, in normal times, in every conceivable venue.
