Melancholia

Directors: Lars von Trier
Denmark / Sweden
125 min min
Special Presentation

Synopsis:
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.
