Simon and Théodore

Synopsis

Touching the heartstrings and tickling the funny bone, this French dramedy follows the eccentric friendship between an emotionally troubled man and a rebellious teen, two misfits seeking self-acceptance. Simon escapes a psychiatric ward to return to his pregnant wife Rivka, a rabbi and Hebrew teacher. When her 13-year-old student Théodore runs away from his broken family on his Bar Mitzvah day, Simon gives chase. Aimlessly roaming the cold streets of Paris, the father-to-be and cantankerous teen form a bond of mutual need.
