Artifacts Of Idealism
A wealthy retiree’s pursuit of aesthetic perfection leads him to hire a private investigator’s earnest young intern to follow an amateur model after he discovers her face in a copy of a Rossetti painting.
The man and boy quickly bond and, with the help of a would-be pickup artist, quietly interject themselves into the life of the girl as she enters university, in a Montreal awash with student protests.
