Matthias & Maxime

Maxime is moving to Australia, and his last weeks at home in Quebec are spent saying goodbye to friends and family members he will not see for a long time. This means quality time with his friends, upsetting arguments with his mentally unstable mother, and an unexpected experience with his best friend Matthias. When the sister of a mutual friend persuades them to kiss during a film shoot, repressed emotions comes to the surface – the question is whether they find out what it means to them before Maxime leaves. Xavier Dolan is back in full force with Matthias & Maxime. Dolan himself plays the role of Maxime in this hurtful, funny and romantic film about two childhood friends who to their great surprise discover that they are interested in each other as something more than just friends.
