Synopsis: Lars Von Trier's MELANCHOLIA, a meditation on depression and the end of the world, stars Kirsten Dunst as an emotionally troubled newlywed named Justine, whose sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) throws her a lavish wedding party. While her lack of emotional stability begins to take a toll on Justine's new marriage as well as the party -- and old wounds are exposed -- Claire's wealthy husband John (Kiefer Sutherland) also knows a great deal about a planet that is on a possible collision course with Earth, further muddying the waters. The second half of the movie focuses on Claire, who ends up taking her sister in after the marriage collapses, and also begins to fear that John is hiding apocalyptically bad news. John Hurt and Charlotte Rampling co-star. MELANCHOLIA screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

4 stars out of 5 -- "The two actresses excel, while von Trier's use of Wagner on the soundtrack gives the film gravitas and unlikely majesty."
Review: -10/28/2011
"The filmmaker blends the grand romanticism of Wagnerian music -- specifically the famous prelude from TRISTAN UND ISOLDE -- with swooning dreamscape cinematography that magically melts sight and sound into one." -- Grade: A
Review: -11/11/2011
"[H]auntingly beautiful....An impending apocalypse is evoked with an extraordinary mixture of gravity and grave playfulness."
Review: -11/10/2011
"MELANCHOLIA is gorgeous to look at, deeply moody and atmospheric, and it's always in on its own grim little joke."
Review: -11/11/2011
"Its apocalyptic vision is encouraging in its hopelessness; its star, Kirsten Dunst, luminous in her anguish and devastation."
Review: -11/11/2011
"Lars von Trier offers his own, highly personal version of apocalypse: a celestial collision rendered in surprisingly lovely digital effects and accompanied by mighty blasts of Wagner."
Review: -11/11/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "A masterwork of grandeur, millennial angst and high romantic style, MELANCHOLIA takes themes that have marked the best films of 2011 and spins them into a blast of cosmic sparkle dust."

3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] marathon of beauty, sorrow and bone crushing futility..."
