Tom at the Farm: Xavier Dolan’s Psychothriller Looks Great [Trailer]

1 July 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

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…

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For 'Tom At The Farm' Directed By And Starring Xavier Dolan

1 July 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. »

First Picture of Marion Cotillard in Xavier Dolan's Next Film, Plus 'Tom at the Farm' Coming to U.S. Theaters

15 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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 »

Cannes: Elle Driver adds Fourth Direction, new Téchiné, Puiu

11 May 2015 1:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Punjab-set drama Fourth Direction to premiere in Un Certain Regard.

Elle Driver has picked up Indian director Gurvinder Singh’s tense Punjab-set drama Fourth Direction (Chauthi Koot) ahead of its premiere in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard.

Set in the Indian state of the Punjab at the height of the separatist Sikh uprising in the early 1980s, the film captures the atmosphere of fear and paranoia of the period and the impact of the violence on ordinary people.

Singh intertwines two loosely connect incidents, an attempt by two Hindu friends to get to the city of Amritsar, home to one of the holiest shrines in the Sikh religion, and a farmer who is told to put-down his barking dog.  

It is a second feature for Singh after his debut picture Alms for a Blind Horse, which premiered in Venice in 2011.

Elle Driver has strong links with India’s independent film scene, having previously »

Now Streaming: Xavier Dolan's Hyperbolic, Hyper-Alive 'Mommy'

4 May 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Take Xavier Dolan seriously. His Cannes sensation (and Oscar-snubbed) "Mommy" affirms that the prodigal filmmaker behind succès d'estime "I Killed My Mother" and the epic "Laurence Anyways" has, at 25, finally grown up. In "Mommy," Dolan wisely restrains his bravado and has never been more at home than with these three richly made characters: a scrappy and outrageously brave single mom, her smart yet deeply troubled teen with blond hair and behavioral problems, and the timid housewife with a speech impediment and secrets next door.  French-Canadian powerhouse Anne Dorval, in a wickedly unhinged performance that already feels iconic, is Diane, the widowed mother of rage-addled Steve (fresh-faced youngster Antoine Olivier Pilon), a teenager too out of control for even the steeliest boarding school. Their unbalanced, smothering relationship seems on the verge of total chaos until a diffident neighbor (Dolan pal Suzanne Clement, »

‘Laurence Anyways’ epitomizes the feeling of discovering great film

29 April 2015 7:14 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I’m not proud of this, but it took me 4 days to watch Laurence Anyways, and I should clarify that I didn’t watch the film in varying stretches over these 4 days, I watched it in one sitting. It’s just that that sitting wasn’t until the 4th day after I was originally supposed to watch it. Thursday night I had planned to watch the film by Xavier Dolan, which would be my first film of his, I hadn’t seen anything by him previously. I knew I wouldn’t have time to watch a near 3 hour film Friday or Saturday due to my work schedule, so it was either Thursday night or wait until Sunday night. It’s play instantly on Netflix, so I go to my account to watch it, and it’s at the top of my list, right there in front of my eyes. I »

Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Vincent Cassel & More to Star in Xavier Dolan's Next Movie

28 April 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It appears Xavier Dolan has been busier than expected as not only is he preparing to shoot The Death and Life of John F. Donovan this fall, but Seville Films announced today he'll begin shooting It's Only the End of the World (Just la Fin du Monde) in May, following his duties as a member of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival jury. Inspired by the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the film will tell the story of a writer (assumed to be Vincent Cassel) who goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love. Making up this cast along with Cassel are Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Nathalie Baye (who starred in Dolan's Laurence Anyways) and Gaspard Ulliel.

Dolan Doubles Down: It’s Only the End of the World for Cotillard, Seydoux, Cassel, Ulliel & Nathalie Baye

28 April 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Joining the ranks of filmmakers with insatiable appetites such as Michael Winterbottom, Francois Ozon and Woody Allen, Xavier Dolan doesn’t take too much down time between projects. Taking a note from fellow Quebecois filmmakers (Denis Villeneuve and Jean Marc Vallee) exploring the international stage, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan will not be Dolan’s next project (still pegged for a fall shoot), but instead, the recently named film jury member will extend his stay in France post Cannes Film Festival for what will be his first international film production. Seville International announced that all-stars Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Gaspard Ulliel and Laurence AnywaysNathalie Baye will star in Dolan’s sixth feature film, Juste la fin du Monde (It’s Only the End of the World) with production beginning next month.

Seydoux, Cotillard Join Dolan's "World"

28 April 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lea Seydoux, Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel are all set to star in MK2 and Telefilm Canada's "It's Only the End of the World," the sixth film from young Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

Based on a play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the story follows a writer who goes back to his hometown when he plans to announce his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love.

Filming is slated to begin in late May and Dolan will shoot the project before he gets to work on his previously announced first Hollywood film "The Death and Life of John F. Donovan" starring Kit Harington and Susan Sarandon.

Dolan, coming off great praise for last year's Cannes entry "Mommy," has also directed the likes of "Tom at the Farm, »

Watch: First Official 'Elephant Song' Trailer Featuring Xavier Dolan

20 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'll make you a deal - I want three things..." With this film now playing in theaters in Canada, there's no better time to feature the first official trailer for Elephant Song from Canadian distributor eOne Films. Elephant Song is a psychological drama starring Xavier Dolan, the same filmmaker who made Mommy and Laurence Anyways, as a rather eerie patient with a mysterious past. Captain Pike of Star Trek, actor Bruce Greenwood, also stars as the hospital's director, and both Catherine Keener and Carrie-Anne Moss appear as well. I don't want to give away anything else in the plot, but the trailer should give you a good idea what's going on. I missed seeing this at Tiff, and I've been waiting to catch it. I've got to say, this trailer makes me more intrigued, even if I prefer Dolan as a director he certainly can act, too. Take a look. »

Mommy’s Boy: Xavier Dolan on Women, Gays, and Taylor Lautner

2 February 2015 9:10 PM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

The former boy wonder, Xavier Dolan -- he's now 25 -- sauntered into New York about a week or so ago with a new movie, Mommy -- his fifth -- for which he won the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and received a thirteen-minute standing ovation. Well, truthfully, he shared the prize with Jean-Luc Godard (Goodbye to Language), which is inarguably like winning a second award. After all, having one's name forever linked with a kingpin of La Nouvelle Vague is nothing to sneeze at. (Who will ever forget Streisand and Hepburn sharing a Best Actress Oscar? New guard joining old guard.)

Talking about the Oscars, Mommy was Canada's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film category, and Dolan had been politicking on the West Coast, to no avail apparently, to get it a final nomination. So this afternoon the French-Canadian was a bit zonked because on top of »

Review: Xavier Dolan's Vibrant, Intoxicating, And Illuminating 'Mommy'

21 January 2015 4:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. We remember watching a directors' roundtable one day and the question was asked of the assembled filmmakers "what is the hardest part of directing?" They all agreed that the hardest thing was to create a sense of life: inside a frame where everything included therein is a choice, the hardest thing is to make it feel part of a wider world, unmanufactured, organic, alive. They should maybe just hang around mopping up the spillover from "Mommy," the tremendous new film from Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan, because, by some distance his best film, it is also one of the most vibrant, intoxicating, illuminating films of this or any Cannes, and it's a little like we can still feel it thrumming through our veins. Centered on an incredible performance from Anne Dorval, with whom Dolan reunites after "Laurence Anyways" and »

Xavier Dolan Talks Missing Psychothriller, Tom at the Farm

The impossibly young, immensely lauded Québécois filmmaker Xavier Dolan is close to the release of Mommy, his fifth feature since 2009.  The fourth however, and one most relevant and intriguing to Shock, is still yet-to-be distributed.

Xavier Dolan Gets Real, Reveals 'Mommy' Oscar Jitters, 'Tom at the Farm' Whereabouts and More

His Cannes sensation (and Oscar-snubbed) "Mommy" affirms that the prodigal filmmaker behind succès d'estime "I Killed My Mother" and the epic "Laurence Anyways" has, at 25, finally grown up. In "Mommy," Dolan wisely restrains his bravado and has never been more at home than with these three richly made characters: a scrappy and outrageously brave single mom, her smart yet deeply troubled teen with blond hair and behavioral problems, and the timid housewife with a speech impediment and secrets next door.  "Mommy" is an emotional workout with characters you simply don't want to let go of, a trio of complex, beaten-down souls that live and breathe, however hyperbolically, as people in the real world. The film clocks in at almost two-and-a-half hours but could comfortably contain another hour as far as I'm concerned. Part of the film's suffocating power lies in Dolan's refreshingly »
