Winner of the Queer Palm and Best Actress (Un Certain Regard) award at the Cannes Film Festival, the third film from Xavier Dolan (I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats), the multi award-winning 23-year-old French-Canadian director, Laurence Anyways is an epic story of love in transformation.
In the ‘90s, Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) tells his girlfriend Fred (Suzanne Clément, I KILLED MY MOTHER) that he wants to become a woman. In spite of the odds, in spite of each other, they confront the prejudices of their friends, ignore the council of their families, and brave the phobias of the society they offend. For 10 years, they try to live through this transition, and embark on a journey which, unbeknownst to them, may cost Fred and Laurence their love.
‘Laurence Anyways’ is available now on DVD.
