HEARTBEATS is the acclaimed second film by Québécois auteur Xavier Dolan. It follows the success of his multiple award-winning debut I Killed My Mother with another poignant and affecting film that pulls no punches and deservedly won the Prix Regards Jeunes at Cannes, as well as further awards and nominations.
Francis (Xavier Dolan) and Marie (Monia Chokri) are close friends who both fall for Nicolas (Niels Schneider), the new guy in town. As both fall into obsessive fantasies about their shared object of desire, the once cast-iron friendship begins to crack under the pressure of competing for the new kid on the block.
