Dominic is a young man with a fetish… for himself. Nothing turns him on more than his own reflection, and he feeds his solitary obsession by posing for polaroid selfies. Following the death of his beloved grandmother, Dominic begins to unravel the hidden truth about his fractured past. His lesbian mother did not die in childbirth, and he has an identical twin brother, Daniel, who was secretly raised in a remote monastery. Reunited with his long-estranged family, Dominic becomes embroiled in a blasphemous web of sex, revenge, and redemption.
Set in the afterglow of the sexual revolution, SAINT-NARCISSE is acclaimed filmmaker Bruce LaBruce's love letter to the psychosexual thrillers of the 1970s that “never fails to follow through on its scandalous promise” (The New York Times).
