Five Sleek Korean Posters for Xavier Dolan's Oscar Entry 'Mommy'
As we head deeper into the 2014 awards season, more and more films start to hit cinemas all over, flooding the market with any and every possible contender. Which ones stand out? This one, to start with - Xavier Dolan's Mommy, the Quebecois filmmaker's fifth feature film that premiered at Cannes (my review) and played in Telluride and Toronto. It's Canada's officially entry into the Academy Awards and for good reason - it's one my favorite films of this year. Antoine-Olivier Pilon, seen below, stars as Steve in Mommy, a violent teenager who is sent to live with his mom, played by Anne Dorval, as they try to their feet back on the ground. Three gorgeous posters, square like the film's 1:1 aspect ratio, have debuted and we must share.
Here's all five square Korean posters made for Xavier Dolan's Mommy (found via RecentMoviePosters):
Short synopsis: A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household.

Is the whole film in French then? Interesting concept going with a 1:1 aspect ration.

Not all of it is in french. The aspect ratio is well done in this film. It fits the story and expands at certain scenes to great effect.
