Juliette (Alexane Jamieson), age 14, is insolent, malicious, and a bit of a liar, not a profile that will win a popularity contest at school. She has few friends. But it’s her chubbiness that makes her the butt of cruel bullying. She acts as if she couldn’t care less – after all, she thinks her schoolmates are a bunch of losers. Toward the end of the school year, events start shaking up her ideas about love, friendship and family.
Acclaimed Quebec director-screenwriter Anne Emond creates a searing dramatic comedy, a poetic, sensitive and somewhat autobiographical portrait of the hidden anxieties of adolescence, the uncertainty of the future.
