French-Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan returns to the subject of motherhood after his breakthrough first feature I KILLED MY MOTHER with the Cannes Jury Prize-winning MOMMY.
A feisty widowed single mom (Anne Dorval) finds herself burdened with the full-time custody of her rambunctious 15-year-old ADHD son (Antoine Olivier Pilon). As they try to make ends meet and struggle with their unpredictable ménage, Kyla (Suzanne Clément), the peculiar, new girl across the street, offers her help. Together, they find a new sense of balance, and hope is regained. For now.
