Young Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan (“I Killed My Mother,” “Heartbeats”) has announced plans to adapt Michel Marc Bouchard’s play “Tom a la Ferme” as his fourth feature reports Twitchfilm.
The story follows Tom, a man grieving over the death of his lover. When he meets the deceased’s family he learns the mother was not aware of her son being gay let alone his relationship with Tom. Meanwhile the brother forces Tom to conceal the truth.
Dolan and Bouchard have already been collaborating on the script. Dolan’s latest feature, “Laurence Anyways”, is scheduled to premiere at Cannes next week.
