C.R.A.Z.Y.

Movie Summary

Director:
Jean-Marc Vallée
Released:
2005
Rating:
Not Available
C.R.A.Z.Y. is a French-language movie from Canadian director Jean-Marc Vall''e, and it is one of the highest grossing films in the history of Quebec. Zac Beaulieu (Emile Vall''e/Marc-Andr'' Grodin) is the fourth of five very different brothers, including nerdy Christian (Charles Edouard/Maxime Tremblay), illicit drug abuser Raymond (Emmanuel Raymond/Pierre-Luc Brilliant), athletic Antoine (Emile Gagnon-Girard/Alex Gravel), and the youngest child, Yvan (Gabriel Lalancette/F''lix-Antoine Despatie). Zac was born on Christmas day in 1960. Because of his birthday, his doting mother, Laurianne (Danielle Proulx), convinces herself that Jesus Christ chose Zac for special, maybe even magical, things in his life. His strict, manly father, Gervais (Michel C''t''), just does not want Zac to grow up as "soft," and he is terrified that his son might become a homosexual. In this coming-of-age film, Zac must struggle to live up to the ideals of both his parents in the midst of questioning his own unique identity and emergent sexuality.
