Miami Beach Cinematheque presents I Killed My Mother

Directed by Xavier Dolan / Canada / 2009 / US release 2013 / 96 min.
From June 28 through July 3, 2013.

Focusing on the relationship between Hubert Minel (Xavier Dolan), a 16-year-old Quebecois living in suburban Montreal, and his single mother Chantale (Anne Dorval), I Killed My Mother beautifully captures the anxieties of a mother-son relationship. While he gauges her with contempt, only seeing her out-of-date sweater and kitschy decor, the ingrained mechanisms (i.e. manipulation and guilt) of their relationship beautifully (and tragically) unravel on the big screen.

After its 2009 debut, I Killed My Mother was nominated for dozens of international film festival awards, and quickly became an international sensation – launching Dolan’s career in the international film scene. But in the US, the film was never released: until now.
