A loving friendship between two young boys is irrevocably disrupted in Lukas Dhont’s (Girl) evocative coming-of-age drama.
13-year-old best friends Léo and Rémi are inseparable. Making first steps towards adulthood, they enjoy a tender and intense bond; so close that their parents treat them almost like brothers. But when they start high school and become newly self-conscious around their peers, pressured towards greater sophistication and independence, their relationship deteriorates, tearing them suddenly and tragically apart. With tremendous performances from newcomers Dambrine and de Waele as the two boys, Close registers the profound shock and grief that the loss of teen friendships brings, the painfulness of falling foul of codes of youthful masculinity.
