La meute

After exploring body issues in the teenage years with 2019’s Jeune Juliette, Anne Émond‘s once again moves towards an entire new genre with her fifth feature. Starring Catherine-Anne Toupin (who wrote the screenplay based on her own play), Guillaume Cyr and Lise Roy, Émond went into production on La meute in July of last year. Physically escaping personal trauma by embarking on a simple vaca at a countryside airbnb, Sophie finds commonality with a stranger. This is produced by Max Films Media’s Félize Frappier and KO24’s Louis Morissette and Louis-Philippe Drolet. We’ve been onboard Émond’s look into how women filter the chaos around them since Nuit #1 (2011).

Gist: Sophie is a hunted, traumatized woman. Seeking to escape her reality, she lands in an Airbnb hundreds of miles from her home. She is welcomed there by Martin, who occupies the premises with his aunt, Louise. Over the course of drunken evenings, a disturbing complicity emerges between the man and the traveler.

Release Date/Prediction: Anne Émond could return to Locarno or TIFF with this item.
