Way back in 2013 at Tiff, we first got a look at Tom at the Farm, a psychosexual thriller in a Hitchcockian vein by the prolific Canadian director still in his 20s, Xavier Dolan. Edgar Chaput championed Dolan’s vision and style as a young auteur, but felt it didn’t have the energy or coherence of some of his equally stylish earlier features.
The film however never got released in American theaters, and since Tom at the Farm first debuted, Dolan managed to put out yet another film, 2014’s Mommy. Now the chance to see it has finally arrived along with a new trailer, and unlike Mommy, it’s thankfully in the right aspect ratio.

His first three films are on Netflix, his most recent work "Mommy" is out on disc and Digital HD, but young Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan's fourth and arguably most widely accessible film - his 2013 Hitchcock-style psychosexual thriller "Tom at the Farm" - is still not available in the United States.
Despite strong reviews in all corners and winning the Fipresci Prize at Venice, no U.S. distributor had scored the film until recently when Amplify picked it up. The plan is now for a simultaneous limited and VOD release on August 14th and today the distributor released the U.S. trailer for the film.
In the film, Dolan plays Tom, a copywriter who heads to the remote country farm for the funeral of his boyfriend Guillaume. Arriving there, he's shock to find Guillaume's family don't know who he is or the truth about his relationship to Guillaume.

Young Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan made big waves in the past year with Mommy, and now an earlier picture from the director is finally getting a Us release.

Xavier Dolan, the celebrated young filmmaker behind Laurence Anyways and Mommy, took a brief detour between said films and crafted rural psychothriller Tom at the Farm. Though it’s taken some time to find U.S. release, Tom at the Farm is nearly upon us and distributor Amplify has put together a thrilling new preview. In the film, “After the sudden…

"Is that all you've got?" Amplify Releasing has debuted the official Us trailer for Xavier Dolan's other film Tom at the Farm, which he wrote and directed (and starred in) back in 2013. The film first premiered at festivals two years ago and has been waiting for a Us release ever since, despite hitting theaters in Canada and Europe in spring of 2014 (and in the meantime releasing his other film Mommy). Dolan stars as Tom, a grieving man who heads to a rural farm to meet his lover's family. It's a very mysterious, quirky, odd, but beautiful thriller of sorts. We featured another trailer for this two years ago, but this new one is also worth watching. Co-starring Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy & Evelyne Brochu. This one is recommended. Here's the new official Us trailer for Xavier Dolan's Tom at the Farm, in high def from Apple: Tom (Dolan) has »

Read More: 'Mommy' Director Xavier Dolan Doesn't Want You to Label His Films Internationally acclaimed, Xavier Dolan is a director to keep your eye on. With a handful of promising features at such a young age, he follows up the Cannes-winning "Mommy" with a new psychological thriller, "Tom at the Farm." The movie premiered at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and finally found U.S distribution earlier this year. Amplify will release the French-language film in theaters and on demand in August. The official synopsis reads: "After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones), Tom (Xavier Dolan) travels from his home in the city to a remote country farm for the funeral. Upon arriving, he's shocked to find that Guillaume's family knows nothing about him and was expecting a woman in his place. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his »

Until last month, the stateside future of "Tom at the Farm," Xavier Dolan's artful adaptation of a Michel-Marc Bouchard play, looked bleak. It premiered at the 2013 Venice Film Festival to strong reviews. What took so long? But after outpourings of love for his 2014 Cannes winner "Mommy" (distributed here by Roadside), Amplify Releasing saved the day and scooped the hot Canadian auteur's thriller off the shelf. "Tom at the Farm" will finally be released on August 14, 2015. Dolan does double-duty behind and in front of the camera as the title's brooding, blond-headed hipster who invades the lives of his dead lover's family — who were unaware of their son's sexual orientation. On the farm, Tom falls under the spell of his departed's menacing older brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal) who oozes an earthy, animal sexuality that indicates he may not be entirely straight. Dolan frames their woozy folie à deux using his usual arsenal of. »

I saw Xavier Dolan's psychological thriller Tom at the Farm at the Toronto Film Festival two years ago, but it never found its way to U.S. theaters following that screening. Thanks to Amplify it's finally making its way stateside, set to release on Aug. 14 and the first official domestic trailer is now here. Written, directed by and starring Dolan, the film centers on Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he's shocked to find out no one knows who he is, or his relationship to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family's name and grieving mother, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his trip to the farm. readmore postid="136687" As much as I love Dolan and will gladly watch »

Between "Laurence Anyways" and last year's acclaimed and Cannes prize-winning "Mommy," the prolific Xavier Dolan directed "Tom At The Farm." Like his previous efforts, it hit the festival circuit, but it appears the film's darker tone turned some off, and not much has been heard about the movie since 2013. It opened in Canada and other international territories, but a U.S. distribution deal proved elusive. But Amplify has finally snapped it up and a new U.S. trailer for the picture is here. Dolan takes the lead role in this psycho-sexual thriller that would make Alfred Hitchcock proud. He plays the titular Tom who, following the death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones, in a very small uncredited role), goes to his family's rural farm for the funeral. But it turns out they didn't know anything about Guillaume's sexuality or partner. Tom doesn't out his former lover, but things take a dark turn when. »

The entwined subjects of time passing and landscapes changing have always been synonymous with the work of Chinese director Jia Zhang-ke; his latest feature, Mountains May Depart, expands these ideas to a point that exists beyond any previously established horizon. The film may well be Jia’s most ambitious to date, in this respect: it spans three decades in all, touching down in 1999, 2014 and 2025, so essentially covering our past, present and future. As with all of Jia’s work, location here plays an integral role – like Platform and Pick Pocket, the narrative revolves around the director’s hometown of Fenyang – with scenes unfolding among local festivities on packed streets, or upon the scorched earth of a local coal mine that recalls similar shots in Barbara Loden’s Wanda. And just as we witnessed the gradual construction of the Yangtze River’s Three Gorges Dam (and inevitable destruction of the »

A furious slew of titles in the works would seem to prophesize a robust main competition slate for Cannes 2016. Though our initial list will eventually be pruned down as the year progresses (Berlin may snag something in here, especially if their 2016 lineup looks anything like their landmark selection from this past January), we’re confident that we will be seeing another round of heavy hitting auteurs unveiling their latest bits on the Croisette.
Absent from the main competition in 2015 were the Romanians (Muntean and Porumboiu were assigned to Un Certain Regard) and any trace of Latin filmmakers. The 2016 edition looks to make up for lost ground. For the Romanians, a couple heavy hitting titans from the New Wave will be ready. Cristi Puiu, who previously won Ucr in 2005 with The Death of Mr. Lazarescu should hopefully be getting a competition invite for Sierra Nevada. Meanwhile, previous Palme d’Or winner »

"A love story for the modern age." Cohen Media Group has debuted the official Us trailer for the upcoming release of François Ozon latest film, The New Girlfriend, starring Romain Duris, Anaïs Demoustier and Raphaël Personnaz. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and also played at the London, Stockholm, Zurich, Hong Kong, Seattle, Glasgow, and Montclair Film Festivals. The story follows a woman who discovers her late friend's husband, played by Romain Duris (seen in The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Mood Indigo, Chinese Puzzle), likes to dress like a woman.

Here's the official Us trailer for François Ozon's The New Girlfriend, in high def from Apple: Claire (Anais Demoustier) discovers a secret about the husband of her late best friend, Laura.

It's nice to see the name Xavier Dolan becoming more and more recognizable among online readers. It means those of us that love his films have been advocating loud enough and you've been listening. Dolan's last film, Mommy, may be his absolute best (though don't make that decision before seeing Laurence Anyways) and he has a pair on the horizon that sound wildly intriguing, including his English-language debut, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan starring Jessica Chastain, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon and Kit Harington. However, while Donovan was, at one point, thought to be his next film, we recently learned he'd quietly lined up another film to shoot just before it starring Marion Cotillard titled It's Only the End of the World and today we have a first look at the movie via The Playlist. Inspired by the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the film will tell the story »

One of the most exciting and talented filmmakers of recent times has been French Canadian boy genius Xavier Dolan. From his brilliant first effort with "I Killed My Mother" which he shot at 18, to his subsequent achievements with the likes of "Tom at the Farm" and "Mommy," everyone is now desperate to see what the now 26-year-old is up to next.
For a while it seemed he was trying to do his first English-Language effort with "The Death and Life of John F. Donovan," a project that seemingly stalled. Dolan isn't letting that slow him down though as he's just begun production on a new film entitled "It's Only The End Of The World".
Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel star in the film inspired by Jean-Luc Lagarce's play. The story follows a writer who returns home after a twelve-year absence to announce his impending death, and the reunion with his family that follows. »

During the Cannes Film Festival, it was announced that Xavier Dolan had cast Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night), Léa Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Colour) and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) in It’s Only the End of the World, and now with production underway we have our first look at Marion Cotillard in the film…
Based on a play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce, It’s Only the End of the World follows a writer as he goes back to his hometown, intending on announcing his upcoming death to his family. However, as resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen and love.

Following his 2014 breakthrough film “Mommy”—yes, even bigger than the various career breakthrough films he’s made—French Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan was all set to make his first English-Language effort with Hollywood stars. Jessica Chastain and “Game Of Thrones” star Kit Harington, were to star in “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.” But apparently Dolan was secretly concocting multiple plans. Suddenly, and out of nowhere, Dolan announced a new project that was coming first and was fully cast: “It's Only The End Of The World” starring Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel and more. Production began at the end of May, just after Dolan was finished with his duties on the Cannes Film Festival jury, and the first image from the production has arrived. Presumably, this means we’re going to have a new Dolan film ready for 2016, perhaps even for Cannes, but at any rate, the »

Tom at the Farm
Nearly two years after it first premiered at Venice, Xavier Dolan's fourth film "Tom at the Farm" is finally scoring U.S. distribution. Amplify Releasing will be debuting the French-language film in theaters and on VOD platforms starting August 14th.
Dolan stars in the psychological thriller about a young Montreal man who travels to rural Canada for an ex-boyfriend's funeral.
