Winner of the Audience Best Canadian Feature at the Toronto International Film Festival, Felix & Meira is set in Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood, characterized by a mixture of hipsters and Hasidism, which coexists amicably but independently. When Meira, an Orthodox Jewish wife and mother with an undercurrent of rebelliousness, meets Félix, a middle-aged atheist-loner adrift grieving the recent death of his estranged father, Félix hopes her religious devotion will provide insight into his loss. Though she rebuffs him at first, a mutual, slow-blooming affair takes shape that will present Meira with a difficult fork in the road: remain within the community she has always known or pursue an uncertain future outside of it. In French, English, and Yiddish with English subtitles.
