Xavier Dolan writes and directs Mommy this foreign film with sub titles.
At 25 years old, writer/director Xavier Dolan has already made his 5th feature film with his newest movie Mommy, a story about a working class mother struggling to raise her violent, ADHD son. Starring Anne Dorval, Antoine Olivier Pilon and Suzanne Clement, the movie was shot with a strikingly narrow square frame which creates dynamic, unique visuals that illustrate this beautiful story about the strength of a bond between mother and son.
His characters are flawed but at the same time also very complicated characters – he gives his characters realism and authenticity and will affect most people when it comes to the mom and son relationship with it’s rawness.
A single mom finds herself burdened with the full time custody of her explosive 15 year ADHD son. As they try to make ends meet, the girl across the street, Kyla offers much needed support. Together they find a news sense of balance and hope is restored.
This is really the story of motherly love and son love but she is the hero. Go see this.
