Simon and Théodore

Simon and Théodore

Touching the heartstrings and tickling the funny bone, French dramedy Simon and Théodore follows the eccentric friendship between an emotionally troubled man and rebellious teen, two misfits seeking self-acceptance. Loving but deeply troubled Simon, recently released from a mental hospital but still painfully self-destructive, is about to become a father. Lonely, long-haired, buck toothed Théodore is about to become a bar mitzvah. When Théodore bolts from his big day, Simon impulsively chases after him, and the two begin a bumpy relationship that might help them both.
