“MASTERPIECE"

1982 triumphs as it should.

-Nina Rothe THRIVE GLOBAL

"POIGNANT"

Reminiscent of Philippe Falardeau’s Monsieur Lazhar,

the film is a touching, delicate look at childlike wonder and humanity, and the loss of innocence that comes with adulthood. 1982demonstrates the complexities of love and war, as well as the resilience of the human spirit.
