Tom at the Farm (French: Tom à la ferme) is a 2013 French-Canadian film directed by and starring Xavier Dolan (Mommy, I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats). It premiered at the Venice International Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Gold Lion.
After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones - Heaven Knows What), Tom (Dolan), travels from his home in the city to a remote country farm for the funeral. Upon arriving, he’s shocked to find that Guillaume's family knows nothing about him and was expecting a woman in his place. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller from filmmaker Xavier Dolan.
Coming to US cinemas beginning August 14, 2015!
