New movie: Cafe de Flore

A new movie premiering next week features a significant character with Down syndrome:

Starring the beautiful Vanessa Paradis, CAFÉ DE FLORE is a love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. Atmospheric, fantastical, tragic and hopeful, the film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young mother with a son with Down syndrome in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a recently-divorced, successful DJ in present day Montreal. What binds the two stories together is love - euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love.

We were able to give away some preview tickets this week via our Facebook page.  One of 'our' previewers said " ..LOVED the characters Laurent and Jacqueline and their story too. I'm sure the loudest laughter came from those of us who have some connection to Down syndrome. Actor with Down syndrome was awesomely adorable."

Review in today's Age (Melbourne).

The trailer is here.  In cinemas from 25th April.
