Special Presentation

The title of Lars von Trier's anticipated new film describes both the state of mind of newlywed Justine (Kirsten Dunst) as well as the name of the planet on a collision course to Earth. Featuring standout performances by an all-star cast featuring Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Stellan Skarsgard, Alexander Skarsgard, and John Hurt, Melancholia is a hauntingly beautiful, dreamlike and eerie portrait of a family confronting the prelude to the end of the world.
