The English trailer for French Immersion has been kicking around for a few months now, but it was only recently brought to my attention. Now that I’ve seen it, I’m intrigued. The film is about a group of people who go to a town in Northern Quebec to learn French. The catch? While they are there they’re not allowed to speak English at all. Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
About French Immersion:
From the makers of Bon Cop Bad Cop and The Trotsky, French Immersion is the story of four Canadian Anglos and one New Yorker, who come to St. Isidore-du-Coeur-de-Jésus, a remote town in Northern Québec, in order to learn French. For two weeks the students live with French families, take classes in French, do everything in French – from singing karaoke to go-karting. Think of it as a very strict summer camp for adults, with one rule – NO ENGLISH! Students who sneak off to speak a little English quickly find out that the whole town is spying on them, “EN FRANÇAIS!” By the time the two weeks are up, neither the students nor the town will ever be the same.
French Immersion opens in theatres October 7. For more info on the film, visit frenchimmersionthemovie.com.
