Jean-Marc Valee’s debut feature is a coming of age story of suburban two-spirited Quebecer who worships David Bowie in family drama unlike anything that came before it in Canadian cinema. Zachary Beaulieu (Marc-André Grondin) is born on Christmas Day, 1960, to a family with three older brothers, a macho dad (Michel Côté) with a passion for Patsy Cline and Charles Aznavour, and a doting mother (Danielle Proulx) who irons cheese sandwiches and believes Zach has a special gift for healing people. But when young Zach displays a fondness for baby strollers and his mother’s pearls, it becomes clear that he is “special” in a way his father – and his working-class, Montreal suburb – will simply not accept. C.R.A.Z.Y. was selected as Canada’s official submission for the 2005 Academy Award® for Best Foreign Language Film, and was named one of Canada’s Top Ten of 2005 by an independent panel of Canadian filmmakers, programmers, journalists and industry professionals.
