At just 25, French-Canadian writer-director-actor Xavier Dolan has a filmography that most seasoned pros would envy. Four of his five movies have premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where each of them won a major award. And the one that didn't bow at Cannes premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Fipresci Prize.

With his latest film 'Mommy' (last year's Cannes Jury Prize winner), the cheeky filmmaker admits that he is trying to reach a broad audience with his work. "I don't personally do movies for myself and a faction of very cerebral cinephiles," Dolan said.

'Mommy' reunites him with two of his previous actresses, Anne Dorval ('I Killed My Mother') and Suzanne Clement ('Laurence Anyway'). "Every moment was surprising with these actors," he said.

It's like we're dancing, or like it's a music sheet and every note must fall in the right place, but the actors were free to bring their own notes to that music sheet. The thing is that they're never wrong about anything. They're never bad, these two. It's impossible!"

In other words, it's impossible to predict what his next film will be like. Although we know that it's his English-language debut, titled 'The Death and Life of John F. Donovan', starring Kit Harington, Jessica Chastain, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates. It's about a Hollywood actor whose career unravels through a series of letters.
