Canadian auteur Xavier Dolan (Mommy, It’s Only the End of the World) steps in front of the camera in this deeply moving tale of male friendship transformed by a kiss. Best friends since childhood, Maxime (Dolan) and Matthias (Gabriel D’Almeida Freitas) are both struggling with their lives. Maxime plans to emigrate to Australia, but feels trapped by his addict mother (Anne Dorval), while Matthias is a lawyer unhappily climbing the corporate ladder. After the pair are coerced into sharing a kiss for a student film, unspoken desires and simmering tensions threaten their very friendship.
