Back in May Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan – he’s directed five movies and he’s still only 25 – picked up and Cannes Jury Prize for his latest film, Mommy (although he missed out on the Queer Palm for the best LGBT-themed movie at the festival).
Just to show what a precocious scamp the young man is, Dolan picked up the Queer Palm a couple of years ago for Laurence Anyways, and also won two awards at Cannes for his directorial debut, I Killed My Mother, which he helmed when he was just 18.
Now a first trailer for the movie has arrived, which you can see below.
In Mommy, ‘A widowed single mom finds herself burdened with the full-time custody of her explosive 15-year-old ADHD son. As they try to make ends meet and struggle with their impetuous and unpredictable ménage, the new girl across the street, Kyla, benevolently offers needed support. Together, they find a new sense of balance, and hope is regained.’
