Watch: US Trailer for Stéphane Lafleur's Comedy 'Tu dors Nicole'
"There's no need to tell lies at our age." Ain't that the truth. Kino Lorber has debuted an official US trailer for the upcoming summer release of Quebecois filmmaker Stéphane Lafleur's indie comedy Tu dors Nicole, starring Julianne Côté & Marc-André Grondin. Presented in black & white, the film is a quirky comedy that has a Wes Anderson meets the Dardennes Brothers vibe to it, centering on the lead character Nicole played by Julianne Côté. Her carefree lifestyle encounters problems when her older brother shows up with his band. One review says it has "an air of wondrous restlessness in its minor ambitions". Worth a view.
Nicole enjoys a peaceful summer with her best friend Véronique until their plans take an unexpected turn. When Nicole's older brother shows up with his band to record an album, the bond between the two best friends is put to the test. Tu durs Nicole is directed by Quebecois filmmaker/editor Stéphane Lafleur, of the films Familiar Grounds and Continental, un film sans fusil previously. The screenplay is by Stéphane Lafleur, from a story by Valérie Beaugrand-Champagne. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, and also played at the New Directors/New Films this year. Kinolorber will release Lafleur's Tu dors Nicole in select US theaters, starting at Lincoln Plaza, on May 29th this summer. For more visit their site.
