We're coming out of the fog, storm and noise of the summer movie season, heading into the the promising months of fall festivals, and it's a good time to be a cinephile. With TIFF unveiling their first wave of titles earlier this week, Venice followed suit this morning giving folks headed to the Lido plenty to get excited about. As always, we'll start getting a peek at those films very soon.

Tom At The Farm Xavier Dolan

We're coming out of the fog, storm and noise of the summer movie season, heading into the the promising months of fall festivals, and it's a good time to be a cinephile. With TIFF unveiling their first wave of titles earlier this week, Venice followed suit this morning giving folks headed to the Lido plenty to get excited about. As always, we'll start getting a peek at those films very soon.

One of the first to show itself off is Xavier Dolan's "Tom At The Farm" (or as it's known in French, "Tom à la ferme"). The director, whose first three films—"I Killed My Mother," "Heartbeats" and "Laurence Anyways"—all had premieres at Cannes, will work the red carpet in Venice for this time, and will be bringing something a bit different. This time around, Dolan has adapted a play and is delivering a thriller that will hopefully showcase some interesting new avenues for the filmmaker. Here's the official synopsis: 

In this psychological thriller Stockholm Syndrome, mourning and latent violence permeate a story of lies and imposters. A young ad executive travels to the country for a funeral and discovers that no one there knows his name or his relationship with the deceased.

Set deep in the farmlands of Quebec, TOM AT THE FARM tells of the growing fissure separating city and country and the respective natures of the men that reside there.

Xavier Dolan’s forth film is based on the eponymous play by Michel-Marc Bouchard.

No release dates yet for this one, though distribution is already lined up for the picture in Canada (obvs). First image above and poster below.
