A box-off ice blockbuster and the winner of a whopping 11 Genies, C.R.A.Z.Y. is an infectious, entertaining coming-of-age drama. When Zac Beaulieu (Grondin) is born on December 25, 1960, it becomes clear that he is different from his four brothers. He vies desperately for attention and acceptance from both of his parents, but in particular, from his loving and old-fashioned father, Gervais (Côté).
The f ilm follows Zac over the next 30 years, as life takes him on an epic journey to come to grips with his sexual identity.
Vallée’s first feature film was Liste noire, which garnered nine Genie nominations. Also a box-office success, C.R.A.Z.Y. was honoured at film festivals worldwide. Recent credits include Café de Flore, the TV series Big Little Lies and the Oscar-nominated films Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. Vallée’s most recent film is Demolition starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
