Mommy

15 yrs 139 minutes 2014 8.1

Single and unemployed Diane has a difficult time managing his externalizing teenage son Steve. Steve, who has ADHD, has recently returned from a youth home. Both mother and son are about to lose touch. The rescue comes in the shape of the neighbor Kyla. "Thanks to a tight and sensitively cooperating acting trio, this is the most elaborate and best film Xavier Dolan has done so far”, states Mattias Dahlström in Helsingborgs Dagblad, rating the film 4 out of 5. Jane Magnusson gives the same score in DN since the movie is "a phenomenal tragedy which, with its devastating shocking ability, resembles one of last year's best films, Ida". Dolan chose to shoot the film with a handheld camera in 1:1 aspect ratio, to give the film a more humble and private feel.
