Director: Stéphane Lafleur Year: 2014 Run Time: 93min
Tu dors Nicole (You’re Sleeping Nicole) (2014)

A critical hit at the Cannes film festival, Stéphane Lafleur’s third feature is an indie comedy that showcases his trademark absurdist and deadpan humour.

Nicole (Côté) is adrift after college graduation, working a dead-end summer job in her hometown and hanging out with her best pal, Véronique. When her older brother Remi (Grondin) unexpectedly returns with bandmates in tow to record a new album, it becomes clear to Nicole that her summer must — and will — change.

Shot in black-and-white, Tu dors Nicole is a funny, wry and charming snapshot of the fleeting, in-between moments between childhood and the grown-up world.

Staff Pick:

"One of those films that seems to move slowly through time and traces characters so effortlessly. A highschool summer heatwave in black and white." —Krista
