Victoria Day

It is the summer of ’88, school’s out, the hockey finals are drawing near and Ben, a shy adolescent of Russian descent, is on his way to attend a Bob Dylan concert with his friends. He crosses paths with his classmate Jordan, who bullies him into giving him the extra $5 he needs to buy drugs. And that’s the last anyone sees of Jordan. Gradually, spirits in the school community become tense, as the kids start looking for whoever’s responsible for their classmate’s disappearance, bringing Ben into a tight spot ? all the more so, as he is beginning to fall for Jordan’s sister. A harsh coming-of-age tale by David Bezmozgis.
