First Music-Filled Trailer for Xavier Dolan's Cannes Fave 'Mommy'

Mommy Trailer

Yes! The first trailer for my favorite film of the Cannes Film Festival this year has finally debuted. Xavier Dolan is a 25-year-old filmmaker from Quebec who has already made five films, and his latest is one titled Mommy. Starring Anne Dorval and Antoine Olivier Pilon as mother/son, the story is about her trying to raise her wild and violent ADHD child. The film is mostly presented in 1:1 format (as in the trailer) which is used as a storytelling device, but I won't ruin the important moments. Instead, I will say - this is our first glimpse at an innovative film that uses the big screen medium in fresh, exciting, unforgettable ways. Enjoy.

Here's the first Quebecois trailer for Xavier Dolan's new film Mommy, found via The Playlist:

We'll update the video with subtitles once they're available. Synopsis for Dolan's Mommy: A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household. The film is written and directed by young Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan, of the films I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats, Laurence Anyways and Tom at the Farm previously. This first premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where Dolan tied to win a Jury Prize at the end. Mommy will be released in Quebec (Montreal) on September 19th, but doesn't have a US release date just yet. Stay tuned for updates.

    Whenever I see a really great movie, I always think "why didn't they make it in the 1:1 format?".
