Xavier Dolan (MOMMY) directs and stars in this acclaimed film which won the prestigious Critics’ Prize at the 2013 Venice Film Festival but was previously unreleased in the US. After the sudden death of his lover Guillaume, he’s shocked to find that Guillaume’s family knew nothing about their relationship. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother, who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller.
