Québécois wunderkind Xavier Dolan returns to the Sarasota Film Festival with his incredible third feature, LAURENCE ANYWAYS. Laurence Alia (Melvil Poupaud) is a scholar in a loving relationship with Fred (Suzanne Clément, who won the Un Certain Regard acting aware for her performance in the film) when he announces his desire to live as a transsexual. Charting Laurence and Fred’s life together as they confront the prejudices of the outside world and their own desire to find happiness, LAURENCE ANYWAYS is a film with style to burn, every frame in the service of an unforgettable love story.
