    Synopsis


    Melancholia
    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. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      I am a big fan of 3d movies, but I don't believe I could've handled this one. It is both breathtaking and frightening!!

      What A Strange Movie, But Visually Striking. 1st 10 Minutes Or More, Are A Bizarre Montage. Fearless Acting Specially By Dunst. Highly Recommended, Needed More Bonus Features Though.

      I loved the cast in this and bought this without knowing a single thing about it. It was a very atmospheric movie. Very light on dialogue, heavy on emotion.
