NDNF Film In Focus: I KILLED MY MOTHER

user

The film, which marks the emergence of an enfant terrible auteur in the 20-year-old former child star Dolan, will be the closing night presentation of this year’s New Directors New Films on Sunday ev...

user
Well, after watching the Golden Globe Awards ceremonies last evening, I had the distinct feeling: who needs the Oscars?
