Dir Lukas Dhont | Belgium / France | 2022 | 104 mins | 12A | French, Dutch and English with English subtitles

Léo and Rémi are thirteen, inseparable best friends for many years, closer than brothers. But when other children start to question and tease them about their closeness, Léo reacts with horror, and the bond between them is torn apart. Rémi’s mother Sophie tries to help, but as he struggles to understand what has happened, Rémi’s incomprehension erupts as rage, isolation and then something altogether more tragic. A heartbreaking coming-of-age story with astonishing performances from the two young leads.

Starring Eden Dambrine, Gustav De Waele, Émilie Dequenne

"If you find it cathartic to sob over well-drawn characters, this sad tale is within hugging distance of being an absolute joy." ★★★★ Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

"Close is a great film about friendship, but perhaps an even greater one about being alone." Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

"Dambrine’s performance is by some distance one of the most extraordinary by a child his age I’ve ever seen." Leslie Felperin Financial Times
