Le lycéen

Winter Boy

WINTER BOY follows 17-year-old Lucas who, after a family tragedy, joins his older brother (Vincent Lacoste) in Paris, where he embarks on an exploration of his sexuality. Or rather, he pursues it further, as Lucas is already very comfortable with his gay identity and desire. Energetic, lyrical and fiercely candid, this psychologically and emotionally mature film features the fine performances you’d expect from Binoche and Lacoste, but also a revelation in engaging and altogether fearless newcomer Paul Kircher. (Jonathan Romney, BFI London Film Festival)
