VIFF Queer Flick o' the Day! - HEARTBEATS
Hey hey, smutlings! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! And Happy National Coming Out Day! Well, I'm back with the VIFF Queer Flick o' the Day... and what better way to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving AND National Coming Out Day than with a Canadian queer film! Today's film takes the form of a French-Canadian bisexual love triangle from director/producer/actor Xavier Dolan... Ooh la la! Trés sexy, non?
Heartbeats (Les amours imaginaires) centers around best friends Marie (Monia Chokri) and Francis (Xavier Dolan) who meet a young hipster named Nicolas (Niels Schneider) at a dinner party. The ambiguous Nicolas quickly becomes the object of desire for both Marie and Francis, and you know what that means... Yep, you got it: friendship on the rocks! And a whole lotta dramaaaa! Pettiness and sabotage. Desperation and jealousy... you get the picture...
Oh, and the movie looks HOT. Trés sexy, indeed! Check out the trailer below!
Heartbeats (Les amours imaginaires) screens TONIGHT, Monday, October 11 9:45pm, and again on Wednesday, October 13, 1:15pm, at Empire Granville 7. For the official movie description and for tickets, click here.
