Paul, a 12-year-old boy, lives with his mother at an institution where she serves as a nurse. When he meets Gloria, he decides to run away with her.
Adoration is the epic story of two young children, who accomplish what can have been a teenage dream of freedom and love for all of us. The actor Thomas Gioria is stunning in his portrayal of a saintly figure, akin to Dostoevsky’s Idiot. Filled with compassion and sweetness, he is strong in his great fragility. Fantine Harduin, who was discovered in Michael Haneke’s latest film Happy End, pulls off the difficult acting task of alternating terribly powerful emotional states.Mathilde Henrot
