2016, 101 min, Canada, Dir: Anne Émond

Based on the writings of former sex worker-turned-bestselling novelist Nelly Arcan, this powerhouse drama of sexuality and solitude explores the title character’s blurring of identities as she struggles to make meaning in her life through various personae: confessional writer, expensive escort, glamorous celebrity and wild, libidinous lover. This arresting tale of a brilliant yet troubled woman haunted by her past, her beauty and her uncertain future features a towering performance by Mylène Mackay (TIFF Rising Star 2016) as Nelly.


In French and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
