From celebrated auteur Christophe Honoré (Les Chansons D'Amour and Dans Paris) comes an acclaimed tale about family and brotherly understanding, adapted from one of his own novels.

Leo is the eldest of four brothers, of whom Marcel, age 10, is the youngest. With their young parents, they are a happy and close-knit family. One evening, Marcel overhears the family discussing something about Leo that they wish to keep a secret from him. Although he yearns to know the truth, nobody can bring themselves to speak openly about it. Eventually, Leo takes his younger brtoher to Paris so that he can visit an old boyfriend and explain both himself and his situation to Marcel, who in turn shows an understanding and fraternal love that transcends the expectations his family had of him.

Heart-breakingly honest and beautifully uplifting, Close To Leo is a definitive chapter in French Queer Cinema that has enraptured audiences and critics alike.
