This powerful and emotional romance/drama centers on a middle-aged man who, when visiting his childhood town for the first time since a teen, is flooded with memories of first gay love. Celebrated novelist Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) travels to the town where he grew up. There, he meets Lucas (Victor Belmondo), the son of Thomas, his first (and secret) teenage love. The son, inquisitive for information on his now deceased father, sets off turbulent emotions from the writer as he is flooded with memories of Thomas and their summer of love. The film intermixes the wintry present with the sun-splashed summer when bookwormish Stéphane meets and falls for the rough and tumble Thomas. “Lie With Me” is erotic, tender, romantic and heartbreaking.
