A semi-autobiographical story about Dolan as a young homosexual at odds with his mother.

Teenager Hubert haughtily regards his mother with contempt, and only sees her tacky sweaters and kitsch decorations. In addition to these irritating surface details, there is also his parent''s cherished mechanisms of manipulation and guilt. Confused by this love/hate relationship that obsesses him more and more each day, Hubert drifts through the mysteries of adolescence - artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, and ostracism. The turbulent relationship between mother and son unfolds with a compelling combination of savage fury and melting affection. The stunning, semi-autobiographical directing debut of 20-year-old actor Xavier Dolan.

I Killed My Mother (French: J''ai tué ma mère) is a 2009 Quebec biographical drama film written and directed by Xavier Dolan. It is an exposé on the complexity of the mother and son bond. The film attracted international press attention when it won three awards from the Director''s Fortnight program at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.[3][4] After being shown, the film received an eight-minute standing ovation.

It was shown in 12 cinemas in Quebec and 60 in France.

Dolan won three awards at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival:
C.I.C.A.E. Award
