Thirteen-year-old Hanna is trying to deal with her loneliness in 1963 Montreal. Her Polish immigrant father (Manojivoic) is a frustrated writer who takes his problems out on his family while his depressed wife (Pussieres) slaves in a garment factory to support them. Hanna tries to find solace at the cinema where she becomes enamored of actress Anna Karina, the sultry star of Jean-Luc Godard's "My Life to Live," in which she plays an independent prostitute (not a first-choice role model). Hanna's confusion and unhappiness go unresolved, but then she still has a lot of living to do. French with subtitles.
