Set in Montreal in the 90s – a decade I know Spindle readers love – the film tells the story of Laurence, who tells his girlfriend Fred that he wants to be a woman. This sets in motion a story of battling against the odds as the couple have to fight against not just society’s prejudice but the assorted phobias of their friends and family.
Since being released in November 2012, ‘Laurence Anyways’ tale of love, lust, gender and sexuality has gradually built a huge following and resulted in many accolades: including the Queer Palm award at Cannes Film Festival, as well as nominations for Best International Film at the Cesars and nine nominations at Canada’s Jutras Awards.
The film will be screened at Oval Space (E2) on Tuesday, February 19th. Film starts at 7:30 with doors open 6-midnight.
Organic popcorns, bar with hot drinks, sandwiches, and soup available… so feel free
