Nicole (Julianne Cote) is adrift after college graduation, working a dead-end summer job in her small Quebec hometown and spending evenings with her best pal, Veronique. When her older brother Remi unexpectedly returns with his bandmates in tow, disrupting the girls' half-baked summer, it becomes clear to Nicole that something must and will change. Shot in luminous black and white and infused with a sultry melancholy, TU DORS NICOLE brilliantly captures that liminal stage where the fading yet familiar attachments of childhood still seem far more appealing, precious, and real than the sterility of the grown-up world.
"Tu Dors Nicole is an especially wispy, French-Canadian addition to an irresistible genre: the last-summer-of-adolescence movie"
- A. A. Dowd, AV Club
"Tu dors Nicole is a wistful Quebec summer tale"
- Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
