About the film:

Official Selection of the 2020 Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.

Suzanne is 16 and bored with people of her age. Every day on her way to high school, she passes a theater, where she meets an older man. Despite their age difference, they find in each other an answer to their ennui and fall in love. But Suzanne is afraid she’s missing out on the life enjoyed by her teenaged peers.

About the filmmaker:

Suzanne Lindon was born on April 13, 2000 in Paris. At 15, she enrolled at the prestigious French high school Henri IV, and at the same time began writing Spring Blossom. She graduated high school with honors in 2018, and decided to take a one year preparatory course in sketching before joining l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs of Paris.

In the summer of 2019, she decided to dive into preparation for her first feature film as both director and lead actress. Hear about both the creative and production processes from Director Lindon in conversation with TIFF.
