TOM AT THE FARM

Directed by XAVIER DOLAN/Canada/2014/102mins.

With Xavier Dolan, Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy, Caleb Landry Jones

Xavier Dolan’s thriller made before Mommy has finally been released in the US…

After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones), Tom (Xavier Dolan - Mommy, Heartbeats, I Killed My Mother), 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 identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller from filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

(In French with English subtitles).

“Dolan's raised his craft, and made BY FAR HIS BEST FILM YET!”-Robbie Colin, The Telegraph

“There's something compelling about Dolan's supreme self-confidence…He takes risks - and that's attractive.”-Total Film
