A film by Jean-Marc Vallée

2005 Canada - Comedy Drama


Extraordinary lives of ordinary people in search of love and happiness- that's the premise of "C.R.A.Z.Y.", a family drama unlike any other. It's a story of two love affairs.A father's love for his five sons. And one son's love for his father, a love so strong it compels him to live a lie. That son is Zac Beaulieu, born on the 25th of december 1960, different from his brothers, but desperate to fit in. During the next 20 years, life takes Zac on a surprising and unexpected journey that ultimately leads him to accept his true nature and, even more importantly, leads his father to love him for who he really is. A mystical fable about a modern-day Christ-like figure, "C.R.A.Z.Y" exudes the beauty, the poetry and the madness of the human spirit in all is contradictions.
