Xavier Dolan started his cinematic career at an early age and he has steadily progressed from doing commercials to voice acting then taking roles in movies to actually writing and directing them. For one so young he has an already extensive and impressive C.V with award winning movies to his name. His debut as a director saw him get an eight minute standing ovation at the Cannes film festival in 2009 not to mention winning three awards. His brash style has saw him follow this up with a plethora of further awards and the future looks very bright for this talented film maker. As a director he has never been shy to voice an opinion so here is my compilation of six of the best Xavier Dolan quotes.
