Lucas and Remi are two thirteen-year-old boys, whose seemingly unbreakable friendship is suddenly and tragically torn apart. Nominated for an Oscar in 2023 and winner of the Grand Prize at Cannes the previous year, Lukas Dhont’s second feature captures the painful moment when childhood friendships lose their innocence as the outside world begins to intrude. Newcomers Eden Dambrine and Gustave De Waele give beautiful and believable performances as the two vulnerable boys, brilliantly supported by Léa Drucker and Émilie Dequenne as the boys’ mothers.
