Juliette does not fit in with the high school crowd. Overweight, precocious, and awkward, she’s bullied and outcasted relentlessly by her peers. Juliette’s only refuge is in her best friend, Léanne, and in her own daydreams. Looking for a way out, Juliette dreams of escaping her small town to live with her estranged mother in New York… and when she’s not dreaming of moving to New York, she’s dreaming about her brother’s steamy best friend, Liam. Although Liam is older and cooler (in a high school stoner way), Juliette is convinced they have a special connection. But when her romantic plans for their future go off the rails, Juliette finds the strength within herself to rise above it. As she blossoms and embraces herself fully for the first time, Juliette will show everyone what she’s truly made of. Engaging, funny, and sincere, while featuring an array of hilarious characters, JEUNE JULIETTE has all the makings of a classic coming-of-age dramedy. It is a feel-good film through and through.
