  • I Killed My Mother

    2009. Canada. Directed by Xavier Dolan. Dolan wrote, directed, and stars in this semi-autobiographical chronicle of the tumultuous rapport between 16-year-old Hubert and his mother (Anne Dorval). Hubert holds his mother in endless contempt—she is outdated and kitsch, she misunderstands him—and seeks refuge in art classes and his boyfriend, Antonin. From slammed doors to embraces, Dolan and Dorval masterfully capture the raw, love-hate intensity of filial relationships that eats away at mother and son. A hit at New Directors/New Films 2010, this never-released gem returns to MoMA for a weeklong run. 96 min.
