Still from 'Mommy'

"Mommy is a really powerful and heartfelt film, and it is an impressive feat in cinema that should not be missed. It is not often audiences get to watch something so honest." —Trish Ferris, Sound on Sight

Winner at the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival, Mommy is a powerful and heartfelt film about a recently widowed mother trying to cope with a meager job and a deeply troubled teenage son. After he is expelled from an institution for an act of arson she has no choice but to bring him home. Struggling to deal with his combustible mix of childlike vulnerability and hormone-raging sexuality and aggression, she finds new hope when a mysterious neighbor inserts herself into their household.
