She’s shy, she’s misunderstood — wait, hold that thought. Who’s that cute boy behind the counter at the pet store?
Fourteen-year-old Aurélie Laflamme (Verville) feels a little
alien on this strange planet of ours, so when she makes a new friend, things begin to look up… to the stars, perhaps, where Aurélie imagines she’s from.
Based on the first novel of Québecois author India Desjardins, this quirky and endearing coming-of-age story about a girl lost in her own world is sure to delight.
Montreal director Laurence has been working in film and TV for more than fifteen years, focusing primarily on short films, including L’astronaute and Songs We Sing. Le Journal d’Aurélie Laflamme, his first feature film, was nominated for three Jutra Awards.
