The film focuses on Hubert Minel, a 16-year-old Québécois living in suburban Montreal with his single mother, Chantale. Beautifully capturing the anxieties of a mother-son relationship, as well as their inability to re-affirm their love for each other, Dolan made a movie that tackles a variety of issues including bullying, the difficulties of single parenting, and many specific challenges facing queer youth.

Limited Releases: Go For Broke

March 15th, 2013

It is a pretty busy week for limited releases with a number of them that could do well. Blancanieves should do well in art house cinemas, but it is too out there for mainstream success. Likewise, From Up on Poppy Hill should draw in fans of Anime, but there are not enough of them to allow the film to expand significantly. Ginger and Rosa has more appeal to mainstream audiences and strong buzz, but its reviews are only good and not great. Spring Breakers is also earning reviews that are good, but not great.
