Synopsis

Thirteen-year-old Jesse wants to be an artist, but believes that his mundane middle class Toronto life has left him unprepared. After reading a book on what it takes to be a ‘true-artist’, he sets out looking for risk, ecstasy, wildness and women.

Our take

The debut feature from up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers Calvin Thomas & Yonah Lewis, Amy George is a sharp, moving, and unusually sober portrait of adolescence. Made for practically nothing, this honest slice-of-life feature beautifully captures the awkwardness of a difficult time in life.
