Xavier Dolan’s first three feature films were an exploration of impossible love. The personal, domestic drama I Killed My Mother (2009), stylized love dual Heartbeats (2009) and epic love story Laurence Anyways (2012) each focused on characters in search of mutual affection.

Xavier Dolan established himself as a filmmaker with style as well as an eye for visual flair, maturing with each film and gradually expanding his scope. The theme of impossible love is still a concern in his fourth feature film, Tom at the Farm (2014), but is very much an afterthought.
