This emotionally charged film from visionary young director Xavier Dolan was the highly deserving winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes. Based on the play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, the film follows a terminally ill writer who returns home to break the news of his condition to his estranged family (a powerhouse ensemble of French actors). Old wounds and deep-seated frustrations erupt as the director explores the dramatic power and claustrophobic nature of dysfunctional family relationships. Bold and stylistically daring, and performed with thunderous emotion.
