This year, the unstoppable Xavier Dolan will shoot two films — the recently announced “Juste La Fin Du Monde” (“Only The End Of The World“) with Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye, and Gaspard Ulliel; and then this fall, “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan,” led by Jessica Chastain. But if you haven’t caught “Mommy,” which put him on Chastain’s radar, and tied for Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival last year, now’s the time. The movie hit DVD this week, and we’ve got a couple copies for some lucky readers.
Starring Anne Dorval, Antoine Olivier Pilon, and Suzanne Clément, the film follows a single mother trying to raise her volatile teenage son. She finds help from the timid neighbor across the street, who changes both of their lives. It’s another exciting piece of filmmaking from Dolan, who brings his trademark visual style and canny ear for soundtrack tunes in full force here.
