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.
