Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #193. Maxime Giroux’s Félix et Meira

Félix et Meira

Director: Maxime Giroux
Writer: Maxime Giroux, Alex Laferrière
Producer: Metafilms’ Sylvain Corbeil and Nancy Grant
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Martin Dubreuil, Hadas Yaron

His skillset was in full display in last year’s moody, tonally twisted short La tête en bas. Among Quebec’s most talented auteurs (and perhaps best kept secret), Maxime Giroux (Demain and Jo pour Jonathan) moves back into feature film terrain with Felix and Meira – the tale of how opposites attract and is born takes place in Montreal’s historic Mile-End district but pushes globally into such backdrops as Venice and NYC.

Gist: Montreal, 2013. Félix is a penniless, eccentric francophone. Meira is a married Hasidic Jewish and mother of one child. They fall madly in love; an impossible love.

Release Date: Filmed over the holidays, this could make a splash in Cannes, Locarno or Venice with additional play at TIFF.
