Telefilm Canada has made it official.

Canada will be represented at the Academy Awards – by the work of an acclaimed Quebec filmmaker.

Director Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy” has been selected as our country’s bid for Oscar glory – in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

25-year old Dolan already has 5 feature films to his credit.

He’s been described as a prodigy – and a phenomenon.

“Mommy” deals with a challenging relationship between a mother and her troubled son.

The movie got a lengthy standing ovation at its Cannes premier in May – and brought home the Jury Prize, which Dolan shared with legendary filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, for his film “Goodbye To Language.”
