7:30 p.m. – I KILLED MY MOTHER by Xavier Dolan (Cannes Winner – French Canadian gay coming of age drama)
Tuesday, May 21 thru 23 @ 7:30 p.m. & Friday thru Sunday, May 24 thru 26 @ 9:30 p.m.
I KILLED MY MOTHER by Xavier Dolan. Focusing on the relationship between Hubert Minel (Xavier Dolan), a 16-year-old Quebecois living in suburban Montreal, and his single mother Chantale (Anne Dorval), I Killed My Mother beautifully captures the anxieties of a mother-son relationship. While he gauges her with contempt, only seeing her out-of-date sweater and kitschy décor, the ingrained mechanisms (i.e. manipulation and guilt) of their relationship beautifully (and tragically) unravel on the big screen. One of the most acclaimed films of the decade, this highly acclaimed film from 2009 won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and swept both the Genie and Jutra Awards (Canada’s version of the Oscars). The film’s initial U.S. distributor went bankrupt and the film has been in a legal limbo for nearly four years. It has finally been released in the U.S. and we are excited to finally bring this remarkable film to N.O. This film screens as part of our ongoing series CANADA IS BIGGER THAN THE U.S.
