As humans, we are all flawed creatures, burdened by fear, anxiety, and other traits both hereditary and nurtured. But we are also capable of grace, redemption, and the ability to rise above our genetic legacy. When a film captures the ebb and flow of a family in crisis with such accuracy and elegance as Our Loved Ones, it's worthy of great praise. This vivid, hopeful, and rich family saga traces three generations of the LeBlancs, a Quebecois family challenged by inherited mental illness and long-kept secrets that are finally overcome by a father's heartfelt relationship with his spirited progeny. It's the late 1970s, and adult son André (Mickael Gouin) has discovered that his father has committed suicide. To preserve some semblance of family harmony, he lies to his kin, especially sensitive musician David (Maxim Gaudette), chalking up the patriarch's death to a heart attack. Years later, David lives handsomely, having taken over his father's business and created a fulfilling domestic life, thanks especially to his relationship with his creative and clever teenage daughter Laurence (Karelle Tremblay). But Laurence herself has her own issues, and her life is shaken when a longtime friend begins to exhibit a neurotic disorder. A powerful examination of family, fate, and the resilience of the human spirit, Our Loved Ones is gorgeous, tough, affirming, and sincere.
