Literature teacher Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) and his partner Fred (Suzanne Clément) have shared a long and stable marriage, but Laurence has been harbouring a secret. One day he announces to Fred that he feels he has been living a lie for years, and that he can no longer go on living as a man when he knows that he is meant to be a woman.

Initially shocked and saddened, Fred eventually pledges to support Laurence throughout his transition and aim for a shared future. However, the pressure on their relationship proves greater than either could have anticipated. Can their partnership survive such a monumental change?

I Killed My MotherI KILLED MY MOTHER (15) 2009 CANADA  CANADA DOLAN,   IN FRENCH      £15.99
Hubert Minel doesn’t love his mother. The seventeen-year-old regards her with haughty contempt, and sees only her dated sweaters, kitsch decorations and the breadcrumbs that get stuck on the corner of her lips when she munches. In addition to these irritating surface details, there are also the cherished family mechanisms of manipulation and guilt. Confused by a love/hate relationship which obsesses him more and more each day, and desperate to escape the suffocating atmosphere of his mother’s working-class, suburban home, Hubert drifts through the mysteries of an adolescence both marginal and typical: artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, sex, and ostracism.

The directing debut of young French-Canadian actor Xavier Dolan is a cathartic, fiercely compelling evocation of turbulent late adolescence. Visually stunning, with exquisite performances from Dolan himself – as the volatile, verbally savage Hubert – and a highly acclaimed cast including Anne Dorval and Suzanne Clément, I Killed My Mother was the winner of 22 international film awards in 2009, including three categories at Cannes.
