25-year-old director Xavier Dolan‘s critically acclaimed ★★★★★ film MOMMY was recently selected as Canada’s official entry to the Academy Awards race, and now we get our first look at the film’s official U.S. trailer.  The film tracks a widowed single mother raising her violent son alone, who finds new hope when a mysterious neighbour inserts herself into their household.  The film won the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and also inspired Jessica Chastain to hop on board Dolan’s next directorial offering entitled John F. Donovan.  In a recent interview Dolan elaborated on the upcoming project.  It dawned on me that I should ask Jessica about playing the ‘villain’ role in ‘John F. Donovan,’ “ Dolan said.  “There is this character of the editor-in-chief of a gossip magazine. The movie really is a satire of the business — more dramatic than humorous. And there’s this antagonistic figure that wants to ruin the lives of every star, especially that of the lead character. And I reached out to Jessica and she read the script. She loved it, and we got along like hotcakes. That’s basically it. I can already foresee all the pleasure we’ll have working together.”
