Mommy – trailer

Released to great accolade and acclaim in 2014, winning the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, winning the Jury prize, Mommy is the latest feature directed by the critically adored Xavier Dolan.

Diane (Anne Dorval) is the widowed mother, desperately trying to raise her difficult son Steve, who is prone at times, to acting out in violent rages.

Being a fan of sincere films that err on the right side of reality, avoiding manipulative mawkishness, Mommy  certainly looks capable of carefully treading the line between heartfelt and gritty realism.
