- Cast: Anne Dorval, Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément
- Language: French
Die (Dorval) is a gutsy single mother struggling to cope with her ADHD-diagnosed son Steve (Pilon); then they befriend tongue-tied neighbour Kyla (Clément). Die and Steve's relationship is tempestuous and howlingly inappropriate, but frequently hilarious; the cast excels, with Dorval astonishing and Pilon charismatic and exuberant. Aged just 25, writer/director Dolan steps into the big league.
