Mommy (2014)

A peculiar neighbor offers hope to a recent widow who is struggling to raise a teenager who is unpredictable and, sometimes, violent.

I've always loved Xavier Dolan, but this one surpasses his other movies in every single way. It is true, and devastating, and liberating, and moving, and funny, and intense. I had no words when it ended and three days later, I'm still thinking about it. There's a confidence about this movie, Dolan seems more comfortable than ever behind the camera and we can feel it. The actors give breathtaking performances, especially Anne Dorval. Brilliant use of the 1:1 format. Wow, wow, wow.

I have nothing negative to say. Just see it.

Thank you, Xavier. I've never been prouder of our cinema.

A deeply indulgent film worth seeing for Anne Dorval's hyper-committed turn as the mother.

This film is not fading in my mind. It keeps recoiling around in my head and each time I find it remarkable that Dolan could bring such emotion to each character brought through each of the actors.
