Few films capture the precipice between of teenage years better than Falcon Lake, a film that dreamily floats along through a summer vacation with the aimless wanderlust of youth. Charlotte Le Bon’s Cannes breakout strikes the perfect balance between coming-of-age warmth, and the eeriness of a ghost story. As the tale of a ghost haunting the lake lingers over the characters, it mirrors the anxiety they feel as they grow older, unsure if they’re ready for all the feelings and challenges that come along with growing up. Falcon Lake is one of the most important Canadian films of the year, and fans of Quebec cinema will not want to miss it.
