Felix and Meira (Felix et Meira)

Felix and Meira


"Touching and evocative" - Vanity Fair


Meira is a Hasidic wife and mother consumed by the strict rules of her society. Felix is an eccentric French Canadian man mourning his wealthy father. When the two meet in a bakery, an unexpected friendship is born. It soon blossoms into something more as they open one another’s eyes to the possibilities that lie beyond their worlds. Trapped by tradition, Meira must decide whether to remain in the only life she’s ever known, or give it all up to be with Felix.

This touching tale of self-discovery was a huge hit on the festival circuit, winning awards at the Toronto, Chicago and San Sebastian film festivals. Starring Hadas Yaron (Fill the Void), Felix and Meira is an elegant film that refuses to pass judgment on any of its richly drawn characters
