FELIX and MEIRA

“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes.” - Hugh Prather, New Age Writer

Félix and Meira is a story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another.

Each lost in their everyday lives, Meira (Hadas Yaron of “Fill The Void”), a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother, and Félix, a secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father, unexpectedly meet in Montreal's Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two wayward strangers find comfort in one another. As Félix opens Meira's eyes to the world beyond her tight-knit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore, ultimately forcing her to choose: remain in the life that she knows or give it all up to be with Félix. Giroux's film is a poignant and touching tale of self-discovery set against the backdrops of Montreal, Brooklyn, and Venice, Italy.
