Mommy | Hope & Freedom

by CineFrames

In his fifth narrative feature, Mommy, Xavier Dolan proves to audiences once again that his distinct arthouse style is balanced by the heart and warmth of his characters. In this video essay, CineFrames discusses Dolan’s decision to use the 1:1 aspect ratio to present characters who are constrained in various ways, and what happens when the ratio shifts for one specific sequence in the film.
