Mommy

"We had envisioned – like any filmmaker who dreams of going to Cannes – of being in competition and winning the Palme d’Or,” Xavier Dolan had said in 2012, when his third film "Laurence Anyways" (and third on the Croisette) landed a slot in the Un Certain Regard section, not in coveted Competition lineup. He then took his next film, "Tom At The Farm," to the Venice Film Festival, skipping Cannes entirely. But could 2014 finally see the young filmmaker land in Competition at Cannes.

Now in post-production, his forthcoming "Mommy" will certainly be one of the rumored titles for the festival. The film stars Anne Dorval ("I Killed My Mother," "Heartbeats," "Laurence Anyways"), Suzanne Clément ("I Killed My Mother," "Laurence Anyways") and Antoine-Olivier Pilon and all that has been known until now was that the story revolved around mother/child relationship. But now the first official image and full synopsis has been unveiled: 

A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbour, a woman, inserts herself into the mother and son's household, providing the mother with needed support.

Intriguing stuff, and one to put on your radar for 2014. eOne has the distribution rights to Canada but no word yet on a release date. [Bent/Digital Journal]
