Félix et Meira (Felix and Meira) (2014)

In this story of unlikely romance, Meira (Yaron), a young Hasidic Jewish mother, and Felix (Dubreuil), a young francophone man who is mourning the death of his estranged father, prove the age-old saying: opposites attract.

Showing off the multiculturalism and diversity of Montreal’s beautiful Mile-End district, this unique gem of a movie thrusts its characters into situations they are not familiar with and tells a relatable tale of human connection, which triumphs in spite of many cultural, personal and faith-based differences.

For his unusual love story, director Maxime Giroux took home the Toronto International Film Festival’s Best Canadian Feature Film Award and a slew of international prizes.
