May 18, 2022        FELIX AND MEIRA – Canada – 105 minutes

Our two previous films, LOVE IT WAS NOT and ITZHAK, while vastly different in subject matter, had one important aspect in common. Both dealt with the relationship between a man and a woman. Today we will watch a film in which the relationship is complicated by the addition of a third party.

FELIX AND MEIRA is set in the Mile End district of Montreal. Meira is young, Hasidic, and miserable. A wife and mother, she hides her records and magazines from her devout and disapproving husband. Felix is a Secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father. When they meet in a local bakery, what starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as each finds comfort in the other.

As Felix opens Meira’s eyes to the world outside her tight-knit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder to ignore, forcing her into a choice. Will she remain in the life she knows or give it all up to be with Felix?
