Whizz-kid Canadian director Xavier Dolan screened a tour-de-force black comedy at Cannes about a disturbed teenager's relationship with his mother, while Ken Loach's "Jimmy's Hall," shown Thursday, described a communist leader from Ireland's past.The film by Dolan, 25, won raves from critics after its press screening this week. The film shows Steve, fresh out of a detention center which he has tried to burn to the ground, returning from the mall to proudly present his mother with a necklace that says "Mommy".The new film by Loach, who won the Palme d'Or in 2006 for "The Wind that Shakes the Barley," based on Ireland's 1922-23 civil war, returns to rural Ireland of a decade later, when the divisions caused by the conflict are still raw.At first the once-popular Gralton, tries to stay aloof and live quietly with his widowed mother.
