Watch: First Official U.S. Trailer for Xavier Dolan’s ‘Mommy’

Watch: First Official U.S. Trailer for Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy'

"Mommy" is the second Dolan feature to be submitted by Canada to the Academy after 2009 debut "I Killed My Mother." But this is his first true Oscar hopeful.

25-year-old Dolan’s fifth feature stars Anne Dorval as a widowed mother who’s struggling to right her wayward, rage-filled son (Antoine-Olivier Pilon) until a mysterious neighbor (Suzanne Clement, who was lovely in Dolan’s 2012 Un Certain Regard entry "Laurence Anyways") enters the picture.

The film is set for a January 2015 release via Roadside Attractions. Its Oscar-qualifying run in Canada is currently underway. If Dolan won the Foreign Language Oscar, he’d be the youngest director ever to do so.
