Hideaway is a introspective dramatic film about the trials of a young pregnant heroin addict. Living the charmed life is not enough for young Louis (Melvil Poupaud) and Mousse (Isabelle Carr'), two very rich Parisians in the throws of a serious heroin addiction. When an overdose leaves Louis dead, it also leaves a surprisingly pregnant Mousse without a father for her child. Despite the urging of her former love's family, Mousse forgoes an abortion and heads outside of Paris to set up shop in what she calls her refuge, a beautiful and soothing pastoral beach house, where she aims to get off drugs for good. But when, after a number of months, she is on methadone and visited by Paul (Louis-Ronan Choisy), Louis' gay brother, her confusing life is dealt another unexpected blow. Still learning to deal with her changing body and hormones, she is overwhelmed with attraction for the very handsome Paul, who, unattainable, has eyes for a delivery boy, Serge (Pierre Louis-Calixte). In an effort to further understand herself and life in general, Mousse and Paul develop a deep and new relationship, and together with Serge, provide a backdrop of family for the mother to be. Fran'ois Ozon directs this French drama about life within ourselves.moreless
