Borderline

Directed by Lyne Charlebois
Canada, 2008 (fiction, 109 minutes, colour, French)

Film Description:
"Adapted from the books Borderline and La Brèche, by Marie-Sissi Labrèche, the film Borderline tells the story of Kiki at different stages in her life. Daughter of an institutionalized mother and raised by her grandmother in a down-and-out neighbourhood of Montreal, Kiki is left to her own devices. School is her only safe haven. Until the age of 30, life is far from being a fairytale. Sex and alcohol are her only escape from the daily grind. Men too, and she has a collection of them. Until, at 30, Kiki finds the love that's hardest to accept: love of herself."
