MOVIE REVIEW – Private Lessons “Eleve Libre”

Intriguing, thought provoking, incredibly uncomfortable and titillating, Lafosse’s film forces its audience to confront the complexities of desire, power and identity. Private Lessons is a story about an extremely cute twink named Jonas, who is on the verge of failing school. He seeks the assistance of his 30-something tutor friend, Pierre. In between cramming sessions, Jonas is grilled by Pierre’s friends Didier and Nathalie about his emerging sexual desires.
