Synopsis: Two teens meet while hitchhiking across Belgium. She, a lovestruck eccentric in search of a writer; he, a charming but directionless aspiring actor. Deceptively simple and beautifully made, Amélie van Elmbt’s quietly and deeply observed coming-of-age road movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and will linger long after it is seen, thanks to its remarkable lead performances by Alice de Lencquesaing (Summer Hours) and David Murgia (Bullhead).
Filmmaker Bio: Amélie van Elmbt was born in Namur, Belgium in 1986. She has worked as an assistant director and screenwriter, in addition to casting Jacques Doillon’s film Mariage a Trois. She lives and works in Brussels.
