THE DEATH AND LIFE OF JOHN F. DONOVAN
For his seventh feature film, Xavier Dolan shot in English with a five-star international cast. The young filmmaker lost none of his trademark style. Sexual identity, mother-child relationships and reflections on celebrity are the core of this epic story in which Rupert, a young actor, tells a respected journalist about his correspondence with his idol, John F. Donovan, an American star who died ten years ago. As moving as ever, Dolan’s direction is more assured, poised and, especially, ambitious than ever before.
