Mommy

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Xavier Dolan's Mommy is a movie of little moments and big feelings. Dolan presents the movie mostly in a squarish aspect ratio, wherein his three main characters talk and interact, but occasionally, emotions become too big for the frame.

She's a widow and singlehandedly raising a loving, but explosive son, Steve (Antoine-Olivier Pilon). Their dynamic is fascinating.
