A recent New York Times Critic’s Pick, Genesis, is a bold and original portrayal of first love. Quebec filmmaker Philippe Lesage captures the passions of a half brother and sister whose lives barely cross as they negotiate their own private tempests: one, a gay relationship in a boys’ school, the other at home with a heartless older man.
