Summary
Acclaimed filmmaker Lars von Trier grapples with his own experiences with depression to this dark sci-fi drama and Palme d'Or nominee. Justine (Kirsten Dunst) and Michael (Alexander Skarsgård) celebrate their marriage at a sumptuous party in the home of Justine's sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and brother-in-law John (Kiefer Sutherland). Despite Claire's best efforts, the wedding is a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. Meanwhile, a planet called Melancholia is heading directly towards Earth, threatening the very existence of humankind. "In MELANCHOLIA, von Trier has created a mission statement of a masterpiece, one that reminds us that nihilism itself can serve as a legitimate form of creation, a means as well as The End."--Lisa Rosman, indieWire. "This is the greatest movie ever made about depression, full stop." - Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly
