Set in the world of elite skiing, the Cannes-selected #MeToo drama Slalom, from debut filmmaker Charlène Favier, stars Noée Abita and Jérémie Renier (The Child). Slalom opens on April 9 nationwide in virtual cinemas through Kino Marquee and select physical theaters New York at Quad Cinema LA at Laemmle Monica (Santa Monica)

The riveting drama follows the relationship between a teenage ski prodigy and her predatory instructor, played by frequent Dardenne Brothers collaborator Jérémie Renier. In a breakthrough role, Noée Abita plays 15-year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps who has been accepted to an elite ski club known for producing some of the country’s top professional athletes. Taking a chance on his new recruit, ex-champion turned coach Fred decides to mold Lyz into his shining star despite her lack of experience. As she racks up success under his influence, Lyz has to endure the physical and emotional pressure of elite training and figure out how to escape the mental and physical grip of power and abuse from a predatory coach.
