Watch: New US Trailer for Xavier Dolan's Other Film 'Tom at the Farm'
"Is that all you've got?" Amplify Releasing has debuted the official US trailer for Xavier Dolan's other film Tom at the Farm, which he wrote and directed (and starred in) back in 2013. The film first premiered at festivals two years ago and has been waiting for a US release ever since, despite hitting theaters in Canada and Europe in spring of 2014 (and in the meantime releasing his other film Mommy). Dolan stars as Tom, a grieving man who heads to a rural farm to meet his lover's family. It's a very mysterious, quirky, odd, but beautiful thriller of sorts. We featured another trailer for this two years ago, but this new one is also worth watching. Co-starring Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy & Evelyne Brochu. This one is recommended.
Here's the new official US trailer for Xavier Dolan's Tom at the Farm, in high def from Apple:
Tom (Dolan) has travelled to the countryside to attend the funeral of his lover, Guillaume. There he meets Agathe (Lise Roy), Guillaume's mother, who welcomes him despite the fact that they've never met and he's just let himself in. Later that evening, Tom is confronted by Guillaume's older brother Francis (Pierre-Yves Cardinal). Francis is a monstrous embodiment of rural machismo — and ferociously repressed — and his behaviour is so far outside propriety he's even shunned by other homophobes. Gradually, it becomes clear to Tom that Francis may not let him leave. Tom at the Farm is written & directed by filmmaker Xavier Dolan, based on Michel Marc Bouchard's play. The film premiered at Venice & Toronto back in 2013, playing at other festivals as well. Amplify will release Dolan's Tom at the Farm in select US theaters on August 14th.

I recognize that woman as Dauphine on ORPHAN BLACK. This looks super tense.

Okay, anyone-else getting some serious Tyrion Lannister vibes, here, or is that just me?
