BIOGRAPHY OF XAVIER DOLAN

Xavier Dolan-Tadros, known simply as Xavier Dolan, he was born the March 20, 1989 in Montreal, Quebec. Son of art from his father, the actor and singer Manuel Tadros, Dolan made his very young debut as an actor. At the age of five he took part in two episodes of the miniseries Miséricorde (1994), while in 1997 he first appeared on the big screen with J’en suis!. Participations in TV series and other small roles in the cinema follow, but 2008 is the year in which he receives more visibility with horror Martyrs of Pascal Laugier.

Dolan reached international attention with her directorial debut in 2009 with J’ai tué ma mère, a drama film of which he is also the protagonist and producer. Written at the age of sixteen, it is a partly autobiographical account of the oedipal relationship between the protagonist and the mother and won several prizes at numerous festivals. On the strength of this initial success, the director shoots his second work, Les Amours imaginaires (2010), again played by him and more sentimental. It is the story of two infatuated boys of the same young man, who risks shattering their friendship.

The third direction, Laurence Anyways (2012), where for the first time he is not the protagonist (he appears only briefly in the scene of a party) is presented at the Cannes Film Festival, a film festival in which Dolan has received importance since his directorial beginnings. This third film wins the Queer Palm, an award given to LGBT themed films, topics with which the director has measured himself several times over the course of his career. He returns to direct himself in 2013 with Tom is still there, based on the play of the same name by Michel Marc Bouchard and presented in competition at the Venice International Film Festival, where the FIPRESCI prize is judged.

In 2014 he presented in Cannes Mommy and wins the Jury Prize, but the success of the film does not end there, in fact in 2015 it was nominated for the Oscars as Best Foreign Film. Also in 2015 Xavier was chosen as a member of the jury of the Cannes Film Festival, chaired by Joel ed Ethan Coen.

With themes that are always very profound, Dolan’s works are particularly striking for his directing choices and, despite his young age, the filmmaker has now formed his own style and is one of the most popular directors of today. Now known all over the globe, Dolan also continues his acting career, playing supporting roles in Elephant Song (2014), Boy Erased – Lives Erased (2018) and 7 unknown in El Royale (2018). In 2019 his first film in English will also be released in cinemas, My life with John F.
