Summer of 85

When 16-year-old Alexis’s boat capsizes off the coast of Normandy, 18-year-old David heroically saves him. Alexis has just met the friend of his dreams. But will the dream last for more than one summer?

Transposing Aidan Chambers’ 1982 novel Dance on My Grave to a Normandy seaside town, Ozon (Frantz) delivers an intense and touching tale of first love. Beautifully acted, this is a tale of love that is universally relatable.
