MAN UP !
UN VRAI BONHOMME
Tom, 16, is a sensitive teenager who is about to enter a new high school after being expelled. He intends to find his place, make friends and seduce the girl he loves. Tom needs the support of his older brother, Leo, a true mentor, who is working to make him a “cool kid”. However, Léo’s fraternal benevolence hides a destructive temperament… Will Tom be able to grow up finding his own path?
An upsetting tale of learning that deals with masculinity and virility with gentleness and intelligence. But MAN UP! is equally a joyous story of mourning, told by promising young actors, noteworthy amongst them Benjamin Voisin, whom audiences discovered last year in SIMON'S GOT A GIFT by Léo Karmann (CINEMANIA 2019) or more recently in François Ozon’s SUMMER OF 85. Also noteworthy is the presence of Quebec actor Laurent Lucas in the role of the father.
