The Bélier Family

Growing up in a hearing impaired family, Paula (Louane Emera) becomes the indispensable interpreter for her parents and younger brother and is the all rounder in the running of the family dairy farm. In a choir to be closer to a handsome new boy, her musical talent is discovered. This in turn poses new and challenging decisions that need to be made.

This word of mouth phenomenon across Europe and France's most popular film of 2015, The Bélier Family is a feel-great success. Young actor Louane Emera is a genuine revelation who lends both sincerity and joy to this deeply moving film that builds to a heart-soaring and emotional finale.


Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular, genetic disorder which results in progressive deterioration of muscle strength and ability. Most common in children is the Duchenne MD. It is estimated that there are more than 20,000 people in Australia who have some form of neuromuscular disease.
