I Killed My Mother

J’ai tué ma mère

96 mins

in French with EN subs

CAN | 2009 | dir. Xavier Dolan, with Anne Dorval, Xavier Dolan, François Arnaud

Visually stunning, with exquisite performances from Dolan himself and a highly acclaimed cast, I Killed My Mother won three Directors’ Fortnight Awards in 2009. The seventeen-year-old Hubert Minel hates his mother. Confused by a love/hate relationship which obsesses him and desperate to escape the suffocating atmosphere of his suburban home, he drifts through the mysteries of an adolescence both marginal and typical: artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, sex, and ostracism.
