126: Monsieur Lazhar (2011) with Sunday Muse
Read the description on Netflix of this gem of a film and you might mistake this heartwarming drama for a total bummer. Luckily actress, voice over performer, coach and singer Sunday Muse brought us the 2011, Oscar Nominee Monsieur Lazhar.
This movie is so good. Subtle, poignant and reflective, with just the right dose of humour. We’re excited for you to discover it if you haven’t yet. For our part, we’re going to talk about Philippe Falardeau’s interest in making stories about immigrants, translating one-man-shows into full fleshed out films, and Sunday brings amazing insight into the capacity of children for accessing their emotions.
Monsieur Lazhar is available on Netflix in Canada and on streaming services across the world.
