Mommy (15)

Mommy (15)


A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household.

The critical consensus

Dolan has previously been accused of style over substance but here he draws both magnificently together. It’s perhaps a little too long, but Mommy is a movie to make you feel alive.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 16/03/2015

Exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure – a decent approximation of how the characters feel – Mommy puts us through every setting on the emotional wringer.

****(*)Matt Glasby, Total Film, 16/03/2015

Arguably the best mother-son film since Psycho.

*****David Ehrlich, Little White Lies, 19/03/2015

Invigorating drama is performed with frankness and intensity.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 19/03/2015

Directing prodigy Xavier Dolan has made his best film yet, a shocking, wildly inventive black comedy about a single mother bringing up a troubled teenager.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/03/2015

Rising star Antoine Olivier Pilon plays ADHD teenager Steve with explosive energy in this impressive account.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 22/03/2015

An unforgettable film, heartbreaking, at times funny, but always directed with a sympathetic eye by Dolan, it provides no easy answers.

****(*)Lorna Irvine, Across the Arts, 29/03/2015
