When the patriarch of the Leblanc family commits suicide, the next three decades in the life of the family left behind and not yet born unfolds in front of Émond’s 2015 feature film. Like a pebble in a still body of water, the death ripples through the years touching each generation. Maxim Gaudette plays the central role of David, the son who has grown up to become a loving husband and father of two. Yet he is highly sensitive and struggles with a melancholy that threatens to overpower him. When his daughter Laurence (Karelle Tremblay) begins to recognize herself in him, she must reckon with her emotional inheritance in order to break the cycle and embrace the future.

Les êtres chers was an official selection at both the Locarno and Toronto international film festivals.
