You’re Sleeping Nicole

(Tu dors Nicole)
Canada 2014. Dir: Stéphane Lafleur. 93 min. DCP

A critical hit at Cannes, the third feature by Stéphane Lafleur (Continental, a Film Without Guns) displays his trademark absurdist humour and sense of ennui, honing in on twentysomethings at an existential crossroads. Nicole (Julianne Côté), adrift after college graduation, spends an aimless summer in her small Quebec hometown with best pal Véronique. When her older brother Remi (C.R.A.Z.Y.’s Marc-André Grondin) unexpectedly shows up with his band, it tests the girls’ friendship and makes clear to Nicole that something must — and will — change. Shot in luminous black-and-white and infused with a sultry melancholy, You’re Sleeping Nicole shows one of our finest young filmmakers at the peak of his powers. — Steve Gravestock, TIFF
