She and Xavier Dolan were honored for their work with Canadian Film “Mommy“. Mommy is an Indie film that is about a widowed, single mother raising her son alone who finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their life. Xavier Dolan is the producer and script writer. At 25  years old, he is a young prodigy who has  impeccable taste and talent. This is his 5th feature film (his 4th film in Canne).  He was nominated as best foreign film for a Caeser 3 times around. We hope they get nominated for best foreign film at the Oscars this year!
