“ROSIE” is a poignant tale of resilience and unconventional love set against the vibrant backdrop of 1980’s Montréal. The film pivots around Rosie, an orphaned Indigenous girl, and her reluctant, tough-talking guardian, Aunty Fred (Frédérique). Rosie’s new home is a far cry from the conventional family setting. Fred, recently jobless and teetering on the brink of eviction, is a quirky artist who draws inspiration from what others disregard as trash. Adding to this unique household are Fred’s flamboyant friends, Flo and Mo, who make their living on the streets. Together, these misfits weave a heart-warming narrative about the diversity of family, the power of love, and the beauty of finding one’s place in the most unlikely corners of life.
