<Toronto Theatres and The Golden Age of the Silver Screen> (September 23, 2014 - Montréal, Québec) Xavier Dolan's new film, Mommy, delivered what can only be called spectacular box office figures for its opening weekend in Quebec.

Perhaps it was boosted by great word of mouth following a preview screening which ended with a standing ovation for the film at this city's Place des arts. No matter the driving force, the film on its own is clearly a hit.Arrow
