“French director François Ozon’s latest, based on Juan Mayorga’s play The Boy in the Back Row, is a riveting examination of the serpentine nature of storytelling and of the frequently blurry lines dividing fact and fiction.” David O’Connell, 20/20 Filmsight. A sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the house of a fellow student from his literature class and writes about it in essays for his French teacher.
