Days of Happiness

Dir. Chloé Robichaud
118 min

Emma is one of the shining stars in Quebec’s classical music scene. Her father, Patrick, her agent, controls her every move. Until Naëlle, a cellist and single mother, enters the picture, and Emma sees a whole new world unfold.

Emma is not only brilliant, but a magnetic performer who has captured the hearts of classical music fans in Canada. Her father is proud of her, but feels that his tight control over her is most responsible, and so Emma, now reaching the top, feels that she can break free. When Naëlle, another brilliant musician with a child in tow, enters Emma’s life, she feels totally alive… and ready to take on the man who is not too willing to let go.

Days of Happiness examines familiar territory — the musician battling her demons — but with a fresh, engaging touch.” –Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
