Every first Tuesday of the month, you can enjoy the best movies on the big screen of the auditorium. In March, we will be showing the Canadian drama film Mommy. A single mother, struggling to raise her violent and unpredictable son, finds hope when a mysterious neighbor lends a hand.
’Loving people doesn’t save them.’’
Following the death of her husband, Diane ‘’Die’’ is left to care for her violent and unpredictable teenage son by herself. Set in a fictionalized version of Canada where the law allows parents to place their difficult children in a special institution, the film follows Die's determined efforts to care for and rehabilitate her volatile son. Hope is gained when a neighbor offers to help – but to no avail.
Like Dolan’s previous work (I Killed My Mother), this film also focuses on mother–son relationships. With its raw performances, intimate cinematography, and moving exploration of love, sacrifice, and the complexities of motherhood, Mommy is a powerful and deeply affecting portrayal of a tumultuous bond between a mother and her son.
