Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, Xavier Dolan’s new film is a magnificent, thunderous drama about home and familial roots. Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) is a terminally ill writer who has come home after 12 years away to tell his family he is dying. It’s the proverbial prodigal’s return, except that Louis’ family is not so ready to forgive him. His arrival precipitates chaos. His mother (Nathalie Baye) has tried to keep her family together despite their struggles in the wake of Louis’ departure, and his tempestuous siblings (Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux) and introverted sister-in-law (Marion Cotillard) have their own crosses and grudges to bear. The group deconstructs a life’s worth of damaged family dynamics, and the writer becomes a mostly silent observer.
