The premiere of the film TOM AT THE FARM by Xavier Dolan

Today it is the premiere of the film TOM AT THE FARM  by Xavier Dolan in cinemas in Sweden. Xavier Dolan is  a very young film director and actor. Xavier Dolan won the Jury Prize for his film Mommy at the Cannes Film Festival in may 2014.  He is 25, he was the youngest director at the Cannes Film festival. In 2009 he made the film Killed My Mother.  We have seen him too in those movies, 2010 in the film Heartbeats, 2012 in the film Laurence Anyways and now in the film Tom at the farm (2013). 
Dolan´s new film is a psychological thriller. It is a very strong film, about the relationship between Tom and Guillaumes family. A very good film! ***** av 5

Xavier Dolan´s TOM AT THE FARM won the FIPRESCI award (International Critics Award) at the Venice International Film Festival in 2013.

Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he's shocked to find out no one knows who he is, nor who he was to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the family's name and grieving mother, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his "trip" to the farm.
