This nuanced, romantic drama by Québec’s Maxime Giroux is set in the present-day Montreal of hipsters and Hasids.
It is an unconventional romance between two people with seemingly nothing in common : Meira, a discontented ultra-Orthodox wife and mother and Felix, a lonely, eccentric artist. When they meet, the chemistry is immediate, setting their opposing lives on a collision course. Luminously filmed in Montréal, New York and Venice, Italy, this is a soulful story of unexpected attraction, impossible love and hard choices. Felix and Meira is a poignant and touching tale of self-discovery, religion and desire between two lost souls who inhabit the same neighborhood but come from vastly different worlds.
