This is a really nice movie. Set in Quebec, between 1960 and 1980 (ish), it follows Zach Beaulieu in all of his sexually confused, David Bowie-loving glory. It is a movie about love, family, music. There are lots of charming, surreal touches that don't come across as heavy handed. It was heartwarming while not at all schmaltzy. Very real. Very honest. Very good.

4/5 stars.

I think I might be addicted to books. And noodles. I need the ocean. I want to know everything. Almost. I love love. And loving things. Like love. And like.
