Days of Happiness

In Cinema
Book Tix!

Emma is a talented up-and-coming conductor on the Montreal classical scene who faces the tough decision of sacrificing family and love for success in this emotionally captivating drama.

Managed by her overbearing father Patrick, she’s also navigating a new relationship with cellist and single mother Naelle. Caught in the conundrum of career versus love versus family, Emma must come to grips with her emotions and finally choose if she will follow the status quo or finally live by her own terms. 

Premiering at Toronto International Film Festival to wide acclaim and featuring gripping classical set pieces, comparisons to Tár are inevitable, but this is an entirely different telling of a lesbian conductor’s journey to self-realisation.
