Finally, some word on the US release of Xavier Dolan's new movie that we've been telling you about, and telling you about, and telling you about, and telling you about... I speak, and speak, and speak, of Matthias & Maxime, which in 2018 Dolan said was inspired by his (and our) love affair with Luca Guadagnino's Call me By Your Name. M&M stars Dolan himself and Gabriel D'Almeida Freitas (seen above) as friends who become more than friends -- I had been worried it was a "gay guy falls for his straight friend" movie but I have been assured, via comments from people who've already seen the film, that it is more than that.
Anyway word came last week (via, thx Mac) that the movie is getting a streaming release here thanks to the streaming service called Mubi (who coincidentally just released Luca Guadagnino's last film, the short with Julianne Moore, a couple of months back) -- we don't have a specific date but they say This Summer. So march your calendars and yes I do mean get out a giant red marker and violently scrawl MATTHIAS AND MAXIME over every page in it for the next four months. What, you've got something else going on? Here's the film's international poster:
