The Young Victoria director Jean-Marc Vallée chronicles two different yet mysteriously connected stories of love. One is set in the present day between a divorced Montreal DJ (Kevin Parent), his new lover, and the ex-wife he still cares for; the other goes back to 1969, where a single Parisian mum (Vanessa Paradis) will not be separated from her Downs' Syndrome son. Disturbing dreams, heart-wrenching decisions, and the music of The Cure all play their part as Vallée draws the two threads together.
