Félix and Meira

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Meira, a young Hasidic housewife and mother, and Félix, a man lost in mourning the recent death of his father, unexpectedly meet at a local bakery in Montreal’s Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two wayward strangers find comfort in one another. Maxime Giroux’s film is a poignant tale of self-discovery, a fascinating glimpse into the Hasidic community, and a modern love story.
