Xavier Dolan is pretty sickening. He’s good looking, young (just 23), queer and has already directed three feature-length movies, as well as starring in several more. The French-Canadian started out as teenage actor, appearing in the likes of Martyrs. However when he was just 19 he managed to persuade backers to give him the cash to make his feature debut as a director with I Killed My Mother (J’ai tué ma mère), which he also wrote. The film went on to win three awards during the Director’s Fortnight program at the Cannes Film Festival and brought him much acclaim.
Dolan followed that with Heartbeats (Les Amours Imaginaires), about two friends – a man and a woman – who become increasingly infatuated with a mysterious young man. His third movie, Laurence Anyways, arrives in UK cinemas on Friday (November 30th), which stay with LGBT themes, as it’s about the relationship between a male-to-female transsexual and her lover. While Dolan doesn’t star in that one, we still thought it was a good excuse to find some cute pics of him to crush on.
Xavier is already busy putting together his next movie, Tom à la ferme, which follows a man whose lover dies, and he must then meet the dead boyfriend’s family, who weren’t aware their deceased relative was gay.
But for now, just enjoy the pics (which grow if you click on them). And below that I’ve embedded Dolan’s paint-infused sex scene from I Killed My Mother.
