This intense portrait of childhood full of homophobic bullying in a French Hicksville, and complicated adolescence after an escape to a metropolis focuses on an artistic ginger named Marvin. And it is Isabelle Huppert herself who assists Marvin with preparing a distressing performance that helps him deal with his past. The actress plays herself in this loose adaptation of a scandalous novel, winning the Queer Lion award at the IFF Venice.
