Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Xavier Dolan’s (Tom At The Farm) acclaimed new film centres on a widowed single mother, struggling to raise her explosive 15 year old son alone. But when a mysterious a new neighbour enters their lives, things begin to change and they find new hope. Mommy stars Anne Dorval (who portrayed Dolan’s character’s mother in his 2010 feature I Killed My Mother), Olivier Pilon and Suzanne Clément. The tearaway trio are a tour-de-force on screen, bringing bucket loads of charisma and chemistry to characters that are otherwise volatile or indie-complex. High voltage, shameless, devastating and funny all at once, Mommy is a barnstorming, box office bolt of indie-melodrama!

From the directors behind French smash hit The Intouchables, the magnetic Omar Sy returns in Samba, a nuanced story of love in a world where borders cannot contain the human spirit. Sy plays Samba Cissé, a migrant from Senegal who works washing dishes in the kitchen of a fancy French hotel. A bureaucratic slip-up puts his immigration status in danger, which puts him into the path of Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg, playing charmingly against type), an immigration case worker new to the job and out of her depth. As professional roles begin to bleed into the personal, Samba and Alice find themselves drawn to each through their similarities, and even more so by their differences.
