Exclusive: Love Like Poison Trailer
Acclaimed French drama

Acclaimed by the Cannes elite last year, French coming-of-age drama Love Like Poison arrives on screens this side of the Channel next month. There's a new trailer online. It's kinda lovely and you can feast your eyes on it below.

Love Like Poison is the story of teenager Anna (Clara Augarde). She's a boarder at a Catholic school who heads home for the holidays to discover her dad has left for good. With mum seeking consolation in the company of the local priest, Anna forms a bond with her granddad (Michel Galabru) and a local lad called Pierre (Youen Leboulanger-Gourvil), a tender rite of passage that pretty much melted hearts on the Croisette last summer.

It's the first feature for Katell Quillévéré, clearly a name to look out for in French filmmaking. The film's title - a riff on a Serge Gainsbourg song - tells you all you need to know about the mix of pain and euphoria that awaits Anna. And if that doesn't, Scala & Kolacny Brother's Creep, much loved in last year's Social Network teaser, definitely will.



So is it Stealing Beauty transplanted to the meadows and hedgerows of Brittany? Judge for yourself and let us know your thoughts below. It's out on May 13.
