A sur­prise hit at last year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val, where it played in the Un Cer­tain Re­gard side­bar, this first fea­ture from writer/di­rec­tor Michael O’Shea tells the story of a bul­lied teen (Eric Ruf­fin) whose fas­ci­na­tion with vam­pire lore (shared by the film it­self ) al­lows him to con­nect with a lonely neigh­bour (Chloe Levine), even as his own, shall we ten­den­cies, threaten to cause him prob­lems in the projects of Queens, N.Y. The Trans­fig­u­ra­tion opens May 20 in Van­cou­ver.
