Infused with absurdist humor and a sense of ennui, Lafleur’s film hones in on young adults at existential crossroads. Twenty-something Nicole is adrift after college, working a dead-end summer job in her small Quebec hometown and spending evenings with her best pal, Véronique. When her older brother Remi unexpectedly returns with his bandmates in tow, disrupting the girls’ wheel-spinning summer, it becomes clear to Nicole that something must—and will—change. Shot in luminous black and white and infused with a sultry melancholy, Tu Dors Nicole captures that liminal stage where the fading yet familiar attachments of youth still seem far more appealing, precious, and real than the limitations of the grown-up world. In French with English subtitles.
