MOVIE NIGHT | JULY 20

 

Les Garçons et Guillaume à table ( Me, Myself and Mum ) directed by Guillaume Gallienne. With English subtitles. 

Mrs. Gallienne, a rather temperamental upper middle-class lady, has three children, two of whom she considers her sons, and another she calls Guillaume. The later teenage creature does not picture himself as a boy, rather as a girl or at best as a homosexual. Through a series of painful experiences, Guillaume will discover little by little who he is  and he will manage to break free from her pernicious influence.

At the 39th César Awards Ceremony in January 2014, the film was nominated 10 times and won the awards for Best Film and Best First Film.
