The Dreamers is a 2003 French romantic drama movie about an American university student, Matthew (played by Michael Pitt), who visits Paris in 1968. He meets local twins Isabelle and Theo (Eva Green and Louis Garrel) who are in an incestuous relationship. He stays with them and has a sexual relationship with Isabelle. All three join a student-led ant-government rebellion. The movie was controversial in the United States for depictions of sexual content. Due to this, The Dreamers was rated NC-17. The movie was released in 2004 in the United States. The movie also exists under an R rated edited version, alongside the NC-17 version.
