Mommy: Xavier Dolan’s Cannes Fest Winner is Canada’s Oscar Entry

Funny while heartbreaking,  “Mommy,” Xavier Dolan’s fifth and best film ro date, premiered at the Cannes Film Fest (in competition) where it won the Jury Prize.

The Quebec-born filmmaker, who is only 25, is quite ambitious, and uncompromising.  It’s been a long time since I saw a film with the unusual 1:1 aspect ratio.

“Mommy”” is Canada’s entry for the 2104 Best Foreign Language Picture Oscar.
