As a director, Mr. Dolan has a freewheeling style, and he's self-dramatizing enough to want to call attention to it without being too much of a visual show-off.

This just might be as close as we'll ever get to seeing "Catcher in the Rye" on the screen. Truly hilarious.

There's much to praise, especially the oh-so-real dialogue, but true psychological penetration is lacking and Dolan's hunger to prove his talent results in a superfluity of styles.

Uneven but funny and audacious adolescent comedy from a talented beginner.

A coming-of-age tale as ferociously raw as its teller -- the very young Xavier Dolan.

What makes it extraordinary is its depth of feeling, which Dolan's age makes all the more impressive: he was just 19 when he made this.
