Xavier Dolan's Mommy

"We still love each other, right?" It's here! Roadside Attractions has debuted a brand new official US trailer for Xavier Dolan's Mommy, the fifth feature from the young Quebecois filmmaker who won a Jury Award at Cannes this year. Mommy stars Anne Dorval as the mother of a wild, young teenage boy named Steve, played by Antoine-Olivier Pilon. He moves in with her and things start to get better, especially after they meet their neighbor played by Suzanne Clément. I saw the film at its Cannes premiere and raved about it in my review, which ended up being quoted in this trailer - I call it a "modern masterpiece". It's one of my favorite films of the year, and I highly recommend catching it as soon as you can - at a festival or in theaters.

Here's the official US trailer for Xavier Dolan's Mommy, direct from Roadside Attractions on YouTube:

Short synopsis: A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household. Mommy is the latest film written and directed by 25-year-old 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 was first released in Quebec (Montreal) this month, and will be released by Roadside Attractions in the US. Mommy will open in select theaters in January 2015. It was chosen as Canada's entry for Best Foreign Language Oscar contention this year. Read my original Cannes review here.

Wow. Looks very good. I was not expecting that.

The fact that this was directed by a 25 year old amazes me to the point of being actually annoyed by it. How I wished I had the drive and the skills that this young dude has. The movie looks fantastic.

easy when you've got a leg up in the industry.

And the money and time for it, instead know...worrying about college, or putting food on your table, or taking care of house stuff.

Ok good. I'm not the only one that is jealous of this guy.

Yeah... If only Xavier Dolan had to worry about "house stuff."
