"Slalom"
(Charlène Favier, 2020, 92 min, France, French with English subtitles, Color, DCP)

This riveting, Cannes-selected #MeToo drama from debut filmmaker Charlène Favier follows the relationship between a teenage ski prodigy and her predatory instructor, played by frequent Dardenne brothers collaborator Jérémie Renier. In a breakthrough role, Noée Abita plays 15-year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps who has been accepted to an elite ski club. Lyz has to endure the physical and emotional pressure of elite training and figure out how to escape the mental and physical grip of power and abuse from a predatory coach.
