The organizers of Montreal's Festival du nouveau cinéma (FNC) announced that 10 1/2, the second feature film by Canadian director Daniel Grou, will open this festival. The FNC will take place in Montreal from October 13 to 24.
The film was produced by Pierre Gendron and was scripted by Claude Lalonde (Les 3 p'tits cochons).
It tells the story of Tommy (Robert Naylor), a ten-years-old-and-a-half boy. Because he is prone to have a violent behaviour, Tommy has always been handled by social services. However, Gilles (Claude Legault), his social educator, believes that Tommy's life can be put back on track.
The film also stars Mélanie Desjardins-Chavaudier, Eugénie Beaudry and Albert Kwan.
Finally, no release date has been announced for this film.
