Los Angeles Premiere! NELLY, 2016, 101 min. Dir. Anne Émond. Based on the writings of former sex worker-turned-bestselling novelist Nelly Arcan, this powerhouse drama of sexuality and solitude explores the title character’s blurring of identities as she struggles to make meaning in her life through various personae: confessional writer, expensive escort, glamorous celebrity and wild, libidinous lover. This arresting tale of a brilliant yet troubled woman haunted by her past, her beauty and her uncertain future features a towering performance by Mylène Mackay (TIFF Rising Star 2016) as Nelly. In French and English with English subtitles. Discussion after the feature with director Anne Émond, followed by a reception for all.
