So I finally saw this yesterday and all I can say is WOW.
Now lets just say this movie obviously isn’t for everyone, like the dude sitting next to me, who when the movie finished said “THAT WAS THE WORST FUCKING MOVIE I’VE EVER SEEN”… anyways.
The film stars Anne Dorval as Diane Després, a widowed mother who is overwhelmed by the difficulty of raising her troubled, sometimes violent son Steve (Antoine Olivier Pilon) as a single parent. Després then begins to receive assistance and support from her mysterious new neighbour Kyla (Suzanne Clément).

Let’s start with the cast.
Antoine-Olivier Pilon who plays “Steve” is truly
Flawless and my teen dream in this role. I mean look how good he can blow a bubble.
Anne Dorval aka Steve’s mum Diane “Die” Després is one helluva sassy bitch with an exotic wardrobe to match *Shout outs to the wardrobe dept* and yes is her hair a wig?? idk?
Suzanne Clément plays the shy conservative neighbor “Kyla” with a speech impediment who just doesn’t know what the hell she is getting herself into, but always has perfect hair!
Now lets talk about the soundtrack! So pretty on point minus a few very questionable songs…. please Google for yourself.
Cinematographer André Turpin is on the $$ with the camera work for this film, sometimes so on point and beautiful that I could have cried (didn’t).
Director/Writer/Producer/Editor/Prodigy Xavier Dolan has also truly out done himself this time and there is a reason why “Mommy” won a gazillion awards last year.
So to sum up everything… go and see this movie if you want to feel something
real. Because this movie will leave you feeling shocked,sad,speechless and amazed both during and after the film has finished.
Lbh it’s worth 138 minutes of your time and $$
