Directed by: XAVIER DOLAN
Starring: Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard
Daring prodigy of the international film world, Xavier Dolan (Mommy 2015, Laurence Anyways, AF FFF13) returns with an ensemble of A-list French actors in this ambitious sixth feature which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

After a 12-year absence, prize-winning dramatist Louis (Gaspard Ulliel, Saint-Laurent, AF FFF15) returns home to tell his estranged family that he is terminally ill. Upon his arrival, he is greeted with bickering and recriminations from his family who have been left behind. Beneath their affections for Louis, each encounter shows the confusion and disappointment felt by his long unexplained departure. As old tensions begin to surface, the gathering of his mother (Nathalie Baye), brother (Vincent Cassel), sister (Léa Seydoux) and meek sister-in-law (Marion Cotillard) develops from a tight-lipped greeting into a fully-formed storm. All the while, the beautiful and doomed Louis is waiting for his moment to break the news.

Adapted from Jean-Luc Lagarce’s acclaimed stage play, Dolan’s claustrophobic close-ups and touches of black comedy intensify the raw melodrama of what is altogether an electrifying and engrossing portrayal of family dynamics.
