While not making much of a splash here stateside, one of the most intriguing names among the world of foreign film is young filmmaker Xavier Dolan. Already out of the gate with three feature films (the third of which, LAURENCE ANYWAYS, is set to bow at Cannes next week), the prolific director has revealed his plans for his fourth film.
Dolan will helm an adaptation of Michel Marc Bouchard’s play Tom a la Ferme, which follows the story of Tom, a man who is grieving following the death of his lover.
Personally, while I haven’t seen any of Dolan’s films, primarily because his films are nearly impossible to find here in the states, this is definitely exciting news. He is a director that has caught the film world’s eye, and with many, many years ahead of the young filmmaker, this should be one hell of a career to keep an eye on.
