Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) presents a charming film about friendship, family, and love. This is a modern-day fairy tale and a favourite with critics around the world. Nelly has just lost her grandmother and is helping her parents clean out her mother’s childhood home. She explores the house and the surrounding woods. One day she meets a girl her same age building a treehouse. The girls quickly become friends and talk about the future and the past as casually as they would talk about anything else. The girls soon discover they have something in common. French auteur Céline Sciamma’s latest film is a gorgeous and captivating intergenerational drama.
