Marion Desseigne Ravel
French with English subtitles
In its Canadian Premiere, Marion Desseigne Ravel’s Besties is the quintessential millennial queer love story. The remarkably unique tale of two young women from opposing groups in suburban Paris, facing violence and the pressures of adolescence, follows their journey of self acceptance, vulnerability, and freedom. A display of unhinged curiosity and thirst for inner truths based on Desseigne Ravel’s own experience as a North African queer youth, Besties is a beautifully shot drama narrative that centers a strong cast of complex women shedding coming-of-age traumas and embracing the beauty of introspection, womanhood, queer identities, and queer relationships.
