After a 12 year absence Louis returns to his troubled family to tell them he is terminally ill, only to find they are not quite prepared to forgive him for leaving in the first place. Adapted from the stage play by Jean-Luc Lagarde, director Xavier Dolan (Mommy) and an all-star cast unite for this tempestuous tale about the fraught reunion of a fractured family.

…histrionic and claustrophobic: deliberately oppressive and pretty well pop-eyed in its madness – and yet a brilliant, stylised and hallucinatory evocation of family dysfunction. THE GUARDIAN

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes
