Oscar-shortlisted and winner of the Grand Jury Prize at 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from French-Canadian enfant terrible Xavier Dolan chronicles an unusually fraught family reunion: after more than a decade away, a dramatist returns to his hometown to inform his kin of his impending death.

Deploying a characteristic battery of high-style cinema wizardry, Dolan balances verbal fireworks with probing close-ups and wry behavioral observation, drawing magnificent performances from the crème de la crème of French cinema—Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Léa Seydoux, Nathalie Baye—to tell a story of sadness, rage and, finally, unconditional love.
