Melancholia

Sci-fi-infused drama from acclaimed director Lars Von Trier follows the story of a chronically depressed young woman (Kirsten Dunst) whose frailties make a fiasco of the elaborate wedding party thrown for her by her sister (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law (Kiefer Sutherland), as a planet with a decaying orbit makes an inexorable path toward the Earth. Winner of the European Film Award for Best Film and the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress (Kirsten Dunst). "A spectacle impossible to turn away from. A monumentally ambitious move" - The Village Voice.
