  • Before My Heart Falls

    2012. Canada. Directed by Sébastien Rose. Sixteen-year old Sarah is part of a petty crime circuit, robbing gas stations and duping good Samaritans who stop to pick up the young, distressed girl on the side of the highway—until one of her ploys results in the death of her victim. Haunted by the accident, she seeks out the man's widow and clumsily forges a rapport with her, without ever revealing her role in his death. Meanwhile, Sarah's abusive handler doesn't look kindly on her revisiting the scene of the crime. Rose's drama-filled fourth feature culminates in moments where empathy and love are manifest—even though communication, relationships, and youth itself are broken. In French; English subtitles. 96 min.
