A glamorously trashy middle-aged widow finds herself burdened with the full-time custody of her rambunctious 15-year-old son Steve. Suffering from Attention Deficity Hyperactivity Disorder, Steve struggles to contain his explosively violent temper. As the two try to make ends meet and control their unpredictable ménage, Kyla, the peculiar, new girl across the street, offers her help. Together, they find a new sense of balance, and hope is regained. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Mommy is an emotionally raw portrait of a mother-son relationship and 25-year-old director Xavier Dolan’s most substantial work to date.
