Poster for Summer of 85

Set during the summer of 1985, a 16-year-old boy experiences a life-changing bond with the 18-year-old lad who saved him from drowning in this passion-fuelled coming-of-age flick from François Ozon (Double Lover). More

What do you dream of when you're 16 years old and in a seaside resort in Normandy in the 1980s? A best friend? A lifelong teen pact? Scooting off on adventures on a boat or a motorbike? Living life at breakneck speed? No. You dream of death. Because you can't get a bigger kick than dying. And that's why you save it till the very end. The summer holidays are just beginning, and this story recounts how Alexis grew into himself.
