Interesting article of Collider about the film, with several set photos, including a couple with Natalie:

Natalie Portman is Rupert’s mother, Sam Turner. Sam was previously an actress herself, but she’s devastated and resentful for roles drying up at a certain age and she wants to protect her son from that level of rejection and displacement.

Dolan said that the mother-son relationship between Sam and Rupert serves as the emotional core of the film, with the adult Rupert (Schnetzer) and John F. Donovan’s stories serving as the support to this central narrative.


During my days on the John F. Donovan set, Portman and Tremblay were shooting scenes that required tears, embraces, and a dash of wonder. Without giving away any surprises, Dolan’s storytelling approach with John F. Donovan appears to be very emotionally earnest via some scenes that look and feel much bigger in scope than anything he’s done before. He’s even shooting on 65mm, which the director said, “changed my life.”

It's time to wait for the premiere now. With a bit of luck it could be at the end of the year....

Xavier Dolan’s ‘The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan’ Won’t Be Ready For TIFF:

http://theplaylist.net/xavier-dolan-donovan-tiff-20170818/

Original source (in French): http://www.lapresse.ca/cinema/201708/18/01-5125577-le-lancement-du-nouveau-film-de-xavier-dolan-retarde.php

According to the Canadian distributor, the film will not be finished until later this fall, which leaves the film off the festival circuit in September and October. Considering that it has not yet distribution in the US, it's obvious that the film needs the visibility of some festival to get it. AFI Fest in November? Sundance in January perhaps? Maybe Berlin in February? Who knows...
