Felix and Meira

In Maxime Giroux's latest feature, an unusual romance blos­soms between two lost souls who inhabit the same neigh­bourhood but vastly different worlds. Meira (Hadas Yaron) is a young Hasidic Jewish mother in Montreal's Mile End dis­trict who secretly rebels against her faith by listening to soul music and taking birth control pills; Félix (Martin Dubreuil) is a loner grieving the recent death of his estranged father. Intrigued by Meira, Félix hopes her religious devotion will provide insight into his loss, and though she rebuffs him at first a mutual affection soon arises between the two. As Meira's desire for change becomes harder for her to hide, the young woman is faced with a stark choice: remain within the community she has always known, or pursue an uncertain future outside of it.
