Director/Screenplay: Xavier Dolan

The turbulent relationship between a mother and a son is explored in this stunning, semi-autobiographical tour-de-force from 20-year-old writer, director, producer and performer, Xavier Dolan.

Hubert Minel (Dolan), a brash 17 year old, dislikes his mother intensely. He gauges her with contempt, only seeing her out-of-date sweater, her kitschy décor and the vile breadcrumbs that lodge in the corners of her noisy mouth. Below the surface of these irritating traits, lie the ingrained mechanisms that his mother has always cultivated so dearly manipulation and guilt. Hubert, confused and torn by a love-hate relationship that obsesses him more and more each day, wanders in and out of an adolescence that is both marginal an typical, combining artistic discovery, openness to friendship, ostracism and sex. All the while, he is consumed by his all-encompassing contempt for this woman he somehow once loved.

An astonishingly mature work, and its almost kind of maddening to think a teenager who never even made a short film was able to create such an assured piece of filmmaking. Montreal Gazette
