Only 25 years old and Xavier Dolan has directed his fifth feature film, Mommy, which won the Jury Prize at Cannes and now is a serious contender for best foreign language film at 2015’s Academy Awards. The drama is described on IMDb as “A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household”. The film has gotten rave reviews from critics and audiences lucky enough to see the film, which looks spectacular in the new trailer. Mommy will be released in the States by Roadside Attractions, but does not yet have an official release date. One of our critics was lucky enough to see the film and in her review called it a “thrilling, absolutely breathtaking piece of cinema”.
