A deeply disturbing character study of a ‘post-graduation summer’ in Paris, by a handsome sociopath in the making, from Director Antonio Campos, the Writer and Director of the critically acclaimed feature film Afterschool.
Brady Corbet plays Simon, a recent college graduate full of promise and potential, who goes to Paris to begin a trip around Europe after a bad break-up with his long-time girlfriend. Although he’s leaving behind a bad memory, he can’t manage to shake off his feelings of loss. Like many young people living overseas and away from home for the first time, he’s both an adventurer and an outsider in a very strange land. When Simon falls in love with a young, mysterious prostitute (Mati Diop), their fateful journey begins.
