When 16-year-old Alexis is caught up in the deceitful Normandy sea, David heroically saves him from drowning. And, this is how Alexis meets the person of his life. But, how long will this tumultuous, dreamy relationship last? Will the dream last for more than one summer, the summer of 85?

MUBI's take

Bearing the subtly subversive spirit of Ozon’s early films, Summer of 85 is a luscious, sensual adaptation of the YA novel from British writer Aidan Chambers. In this fleeting gay romance full of youthful energy, the heat of love’s first flame ignites a pleasurable nostalgia for the 1980s.
