Quotes & Highlights
“Private Lessons more than confirms the rising talent of 33-year-old Belgian writer-director Joachim Lafosse.” —Variety
Presented by the Consulate General of Belgium in Los Angeles, In Cooperation with Flanders Image and Wallonie Bruxelles Images, With the Support of E.L.M.A. (European Languages and Movies in America):
Los Angeles Premiere of Private Lessons (2008, Haut et Court, 105 min.). At once wickedly funny and acerbically tense, director Joachim Lafosse’s coming-of-age tale centers on Jonas (an excellent Jonas Bloquet), an aspiring tennis player who is rapidly flunking high school. In order to better his grades and ensure the continuation of his career on the tennis courts, Jonas seeks the tutorship of an older boy, Pierre. But Pierre has more wisdom to impart to Jonas than meets the eye, and the duo’s “private lessons” quickly move from academics to more-taboo subjects.
