Riverside Studios are grateful to our friends at Peccadillo Pictures for the special PRIDE month preview of Olivier Peyon's acclaimed new gay drama LIE WITH ME.
In Olivier Peyon’s powerfully emotional drama, successful gay novelist Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) must confront the ghosts of the past when he returns to his small hometown for the first time in decades. Invited as brand ambassador for the town’s famous cognac distillery, Stéphane is stunned to discover that one of the company’s executives is Lucas (Victor Belmondo), the son of his teenage first love Thomas. This triggers for Stéphane vivid memories of their passionate but secret adolescent affair – at a time when homosexuality was kept in the shadows – and which was abruptly ended by Thomas. As he processes the pain of the lost years and what might have been, Stéphane begins to repair the deep wounds of his youth, while Lucas begins to understand his late father’s truth.
A moving meditation on the intoxicating force of first love, LIE WITH ME is a beautifully photographed and superbly acted adaptation of acclaimed author Philippe Besson’s autobiographical book.
