HELD OVER! Slalom, a riveting new film by Charlène Favier streams until May 25
Friday, April 09, 2021 - Tuesday, May 25, 2021
HELD OVER! Slalom, a riveting new film by Charlène Favier streams until May 25

This riveting, 2020 Cannes-selected #MeToo drama from debut filmmaker Charlène Favier follows the relationship between a teenage ski prodigy and her predatory instructor, played by frequent Dardenne Brothers collaborator Jérémie Renier. Watch the trailer here.

Noée Abita plays 15-year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps who has been accepted to an elite ski club known for producing some of the country’s top professional athletes. Taking a chance on his new recruit, ex-champion turned coach Fred decides to mold Lyz into his shining star despite her lack of experience. Under his influence, she will have to endure more than the physical and emotional pressure of the training. Will Lyz’s determination help her escape Fred’s exploitative grip?

Please note that this is a film for adult audiences. It tells the story of how a young female skier's training is overshadowed by her abusive male coach. The film is a sobering portrayal of the abuse of power in the narrow setting of a highly competitive sport. As such, it has direct tie-ins with the #MeToo movement.

In French with English subtitles. Running time 92 minutes. Your ticket is a five-day pass to watch Slalom; all tickets run $12.
