Synopsis: Always picked last for school teams and bullied by fellow students, Damien takes self defense lessons from a family friend. His life is turned upside-down when his mother’s latest patient is a parent of Thomas, his biggest nemesis (and secret crush). Things go from bad to worse when his mother invites Thomas to stay with the family. As the two enemies are forced to rely on each other, hate gives way to grudging respect that is tested with each new challenge they face. Set against the glorious backdrop of the French Alps, French master Andre Techine’s (“Wild Reeds”) latest, Being 17 captures with authenticity the many trials of young men from vastly different backgrounds as they come into their own.
