Morning After is a bold and playful drama that explores the subject of sexual fluidity and human desire. This poignant and moving coming-of-age tale perfectly captures the challenges and tribulations of five friends who decide to explore their sexuality and realize that they may not fall within societies’ clean-cut lines.
“I wanted to speak about human connection, energy and sexual enlightenment from a fresh perspective other than the LGBTQ or heterosexual’s points of view. I wanted to make a film about desire and arousal that would go beyond the conventional physical realm… a deeper and perhaps more spiritual approach to sexuality, self-expression and self-acceptance. Morning After presented the perfect opportunity for me to hit all of these narrative targets in one single project,” says director Patricia Chica.
Morning After stars five bright rising actors – Thomas Vallières (Game of Death),Zoé de Grand Maison (Orphan Black), Joey Scarpellino (The Parents), Jordana Lajoie (Patrice Lemieux 24/7) and Kristian Hodko (The Howling: Reborn) who also wrote the script.
“I don’t think sexual fluidity is such a new thing. Be it for religious or historical reasons, it’s something that we’ve blocked off,” adds lead actor Thomas Vallières who is presently doing a masters degree at LAMDA, the prestigious drama school in London, England.
