Book Tix!

Winner of Best Canadian Feature at TIFF, Solo is a stylish and vibrant film set in the heart of Montreal’s drag scene.

Simon (Théodore Pellerin) is an up-and-coming drag star in Montreal when he meets Olivier (Felix Maritaud; Sauvage, MGFF19). Instant attraction leads to an all-consuming but toxic relationship, slowly leading Simon to lose his sense of self. This love story parallels Simon’s relationship with his absent mother, who has returned to Canada after a 15 year absence. Will these two relationships give Simon the love he craves, or will he realise that he deserves better?
