Canada’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar Produced by the team behind the Academy Award-nominated Incendies and Monsieur Lazhar, Gabrielle is a captivating tale of a young woman’s quest to make her own happiness.

“Québécois director Louise Archambault follows her smart and refreshing debut feature Familia with this tender drama about a developmentally challenged young woman’s quest for independence and sexual freedom. Living in a group home for developmentally disabled adults, the musically talented Gabrielle (luminously played by Gabrielle Marion-Rivard, who has Williams syndrome in real life) finds love with her fellow choir member Martin (Alexandre Landry), but the couple’s desire to explore their feelings for one another physically is forbidden by the home’s staff. Convinced that living alone will allow her to have the intimate relationship she craves, Gabrielle valiantly sets out to prove she can be independent.”
- Agata Smoluch Del Sorbo
