To celebrate Europride in Malta, the High Commission of Canada is pleased to present Rosie, a dramedy directed by Canadian Métis filmmaker Gail Maurice. Canada stands up for the protection and promotion of the human rights of 2-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) people globally. The human rights of all persons are universal and indivisible. Everyone should enjoy the same fundamental human rights, regardless of their sexual orientation and their gender identity and expression. Because love is love.
Fréderique (Bray), a struggling artist living in 1980s Montreal, is shocked when she’s put in charge of Rosie (Hill), the young daughter of her foster sister who recently passed away. With an impending eviction from her apartment, and no desire to be a mother, she must rely on her chosen family – two aspiring drag stars Flo and Mo – to take care of the spirited youngster and keep Rosie out of the foster care system that Fréderique herself hated.
The first feature from director Gail Maurice, ROSIE is a touching and warm comedy that is sure to charm audiences the world over.
