Dolan wrote and directed the pic starring Anne Dorval, Antoine Olivier Pilon and Suzanne Clément.
Set in a fictional Canada, where a new law allows distressed parents to abandon troubled children to the hospital system, “Die” Despres, a feisty widow, tries to cope with Steve, her wild yet charming ADHD son. While they both try to make ends meet and live under the same roof, Kyla, a mysterious neighbour, offers her help.
Roadside Attractions will release the buzzy Cannes title in the first quarter 2015.
eOne/Les Films Séville is handling direct distribution of the film in English and French Canada while Séville International had a very active Cannes and has now sold “Mommy” to over 50 countries.
