Tom at the Farm


A young man (Xavier Dolan) from Montreal drives out in the country to attend his boyfriendā€™s funeral, but meeting his family for the first time becomes a weird and intimidating experienceā€¦ Dolanā€™s adaptation of Michel Marc Bouchardā€™s play was a new experience for him, a thriller, but not in a conventional, genre-bound way. When Tom meets his boyfriendā€™s aggressive brother out in the isolated, rural community, a psychological game with homoerotic vibes follows. Certainly intriguing and uncomfortable at times, even if the story ultimately doesnā€™t have much to say. The acting and raw atmosphere compensate.

2014-Canada-France. 102 min. Color. Directed and edited byĀ Xavier Dolan. Screenplay: Xavier Dolan, Michel Marc Bouchard. Play: Michel Marc Bouchard. Cast: Xavier Dolan (Tom Podowski), Pierre-Yves Cardinal (Francis Longchamp), Lise Roy (Agathe Longchamp), ƈvelyne Brochu (Sarah Thibault).

Trivia: Original title: Tom Ć  la ferme.
