Expected on Club illico on May 11: “Variety” shines its spotlight on the series “The pearls”
The American magazine “Variety” mentioned the upcoming arrival of the series “The Pearls”, which will be available from May 11 on Club illico.
< p>In the short paper, author Erika Soucy is said to describe “Pearls” – the English title – as the Quebec cousin of “Mermaids,” that 1990 Hollywood classic that stars Cher and Winona Ryder.
The “dramedy” “The Pearls” tells the story of a single mother, Stéphanie Houle (Bianca Gervais), who raises her two daughters Laurence (Cassandra Latreille), 16, and Juliette (Anouk Tanguay) , 9 years old, in a small community on the North Shore.
It is about single parenthood, early motherhood and female solidarity.
“I wanted to create a feminist series that highlights women who have neither the time nor the vocabulary to assert themselves. While developing many themes that are close to my heart, ultimately [the series] asks a question: “what does it mean to be a good mother?” said Erika Soucy, according to “Variety ”.
On Instagram, Bianca Gervais was delighted that we were talking about the “Pearls” in this prestigious magazine.
The 13 half- hours are directed by Hervé Baillargeon (“Six Degrees”). The cast also includes Jonah Bacon, Chantal Baril, Anthony Bouchard, Isaac Brosseau, Normand Canac-Marquis, Claude Despins, Camille Felton, Linda Malo, Bruno Marcil, Rosalie Pépin, Alex Pomerleau and Lucien Ratio.
