DEMONS, THE (2015)
Award-winning documentarian Philippe Lesage (THE HEART THAT BEATS) turned to narrative filmmaking with stunning results in this psychological thriller set in 1980s suburban Montreal. While the city is blighted by a series of kidnappings targeting young boys, nine-year-old Felix (newcomer Édouard Tremblay-Grenier) is busy finishing his school year. As the peripheral knowledge of these abductions begins to permeate Felix's fragile consciousness, his imagined demons slowly start to mirror an increasingly nightmarish reality around him. DIR/SCR/PROD Philippe Lesage; PROD Galilé Marion-Gauvin. Canada, 2015, color, 118 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
