Philippe Lesage gives the coming-of-age drama an exceptional makeover in Genesis, following the rollercoaster ride of first love affairs amongst a group of Canadian teens.

His step sister Charlotte, 18, is startled as her boyfriend suggests having an open relationship and both their lives change forever. With terrific performances from a talented young cast, a witty and insightful script and original direction, the film has an emotional richness and complexity that’s unusual for any genre.
