  • Heartbeats

    2010. Canada. Directed by Xavier Dolan. Best friends Francis and Marie are inseparable—until they both fall for Nicholas, a handsome newcomer. As the trio spends their days and nights together, the two friends passive-aggressively vie for Nicholas’s attention and analyze his every gesture. Heartbeats establishes Dolan’s visual lexicon, with highly stylized slow-motion scenes and riffs on a generation of classic cool; Marie is a doe-eyed, cigarette-poised Audrey Hepburn, and Francis, who keeps a stick-figure tally of his misfortunes in romance, is a melancholy James Dean. Humorous and heartbreaking, the emotional three-way is a contemporary update on Jules and Jim, with all the neuroses of the 21st century. 101 min.
