Xavier Dolan’s Debut, I Killed My Mother, Finally Nabs A Distributor In Kino Lorber

It’s been a long time coming, but frankly, it’s about damn time.

Kino Lorber has finally stepped up to nab the rights to the debut film from beloved indie director Xavier Dolan, entitled I Killed My Mother. The film, which he shot at the ripe age of 20 years old, has already seen the light of day in foreign markets (hell, even Canada, Dolan’s native land respectively, has seen the film), but with rights issues firmly behind him and his feature, Kino has picked up the film, and will hit theaters this fall.

I haven’t seen this film, but with Heartbeats being one of this writer’s favorite films, I really can’t wait to see what an even younger Dolan had to offer. This has, for a while now, been one of those much talked about festival darlings that just could never find a good footing here stateside with distributors, but in the hands   of Kino, I really can’t wait to check this film out.
