A shy teenager on a summer vacation experiences the joy and pain of young adulthood when he forges an unlikely bond with an older girl. Based on Bastien Vivès’s 2017 graphic novel “Une soeur”.
“Le Bon’s striking, stylish, sweetly scary debut… takes such mischievous pleasure in playing with the macabre tropes of the slasher flick…”
