Tom, a young advertising copywriter, travels to the country for a funeral. There, he’s shocked to find out no one knows who he is, nor who he was to the deceased, whose brother soon sets the rules of a twisted game. In order to protect the
family’s name and grieving mother, Tom now has to play the peacekeeper in a household whose obscure past bodes even greater darkness for his «trip» to the farm.
Long ways, long lies…
Set in Quebec’s rural panorama, this psychological thriller centres on the evergrowing gap between city and country and the oppositive nature of men who live there. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief and secretive savageries pervade this brief and brutal pilgrimage through the warped and ugly truth. Adapted from the original play by acclaimed Quebecois author Michel Marc Bouchard, Tom at the Farm is Xavier Dolan’s fourth film.
