Tom at the Farm
Called “a kinky film noir” by Variety, Tom at the Farm stars and is directed by young French-Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan, who channels both Hitchcock and Tennessee Williams in this 2013 psychological thriller. Adapted from the acclaimed play by Michel Marc Bouchard and featuring an evocative score by Gabriel Yared, the film follows Tom, a grieving copywriter who travels to the Quebec countryside for the funeral of his partner. To his surprise, the family is ignorant of his existence, and Tom begins a game of cat-and-mouse with a household that has dark secrets of its own. Tom at the Farm screened in Toronto as well as Venice, where it was honored with the FIPRESCI Award for innovative filmmaking. Screens Sunday at 9:45 p.m. and Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. at TCL Chinese Theaters, 6801 Hollywood Blvd.
