Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy' Gets a Beautiful First Clip

25-year-old Xavier Dolan surprised everyone at Cannes yesterday a week ago with his latest drama, "Mommy," a beautiful film that explores a mother-son relationship. Now, we have the first clip for the Canadian director's fifth feature film.

"Mommy" explores the relationship between a widowed, single mother, played by Dolan regular Anne Dorval, and her troubled teenage son. When a kind-hearted neighbor enters the picture, Dorval's character and her son (Antoine-Olivier Pilon) finally have a chance at stability.

Check out the clip, with Counting Crows' "Colorblind," below.
