I Killed My Mother

J'AI TUÉ MA MÈRE
Canada | 2009 | Xavier Dolan

I Killed My Mother

Wildly praised at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival (where it received an eight-minute standing ovation), then never released in America because the U.S. distributor went bankrupt, the semi-autobiographical debut film by then 20-year-old French-Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan (Heartbeats, Laurence Anyways) chronicles the love-hate relationship between a gay 16-year-old (Dolan) and his single mother. Despising her kitschy tastes and old-fashioned values, he escapes into art and his boyfriend. But even though he is incapable of loving his mom, he discovers that he is also incapable of not loving her. Don’t miss the chance to see this significant and stylish movie in a 35mm print imported from Canada. “Marks the emergence of an exciting new filmmaking talent.” –Indiewire.

Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 35mm. 96 min. Special admission $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under $7. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
