"Among Ozon’s most lyrical and daring films."–Chicago Reader
"Boldly original!"—Armond White, New York Press
From the imagination of France’s most versatile filmmaker, Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, Under the Sand), comes Ricky, a magical and mysterious tale that blends magic realism and an affecting family story.
When Katie, an ordinary woman, meets Paco, an ordinary man, they fall in love. After starting a life together, something truly extraordinary is added to the mix: a baby called Ricky. This miraculous creature brings the young family challenges no parent could be prepared for…
Trust us when we say that you should go into this film knowing as little about the storyline as possible. It isn’t full of cheap plot twists, but the story develops in surprising ways that introduce unexpected elements and emotions into a very human fable. Ricky is a great film to see with friends and to talk about afterwards. (90 mins., 35mm)
