FAKE TATTOOS + SILVERLAKE AFTERNOON
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13 – 35th Annual Olympia Film Festival
6:00pm doors / 6:30pm film
A film about music, the ephemera of meet-cutes, and the trauma of living. Director Pascal Plante’s Fake Tattoos revolves around Theo (Anthony Therrien) and Mag (Rose-Marie Perreault), two teenagers who ascend into the void of friendship and flirtation in a sun-flecked summer. The lived-in moments of joy and apprehension are some of the most nuanced, funny, and heartbreaking in recent film memory. Plante’s film is an ode to the realization of memories and the specters of the past. Keep Rose-Marie Perreault’s rookie card: she is going to be big.
