Please NOTE: The event will now take place upstairs in the main house.
An audacious, beautiful study of ways of living and dying that asks timely questions about how people react when faced with the prospect of impending doom. At her own wedding, Justine (the exceptional Dunst) is overcome by depression and alienates everyone, including her new husband and her devoted sister Claire (Gainsbourg). When a new planet, Melancholia, appears in the sky, Justine knows it will destroy Earth. With its blackly comic tone, it's lighter than Von Trier’s recent films but like The Tree of Life it will no doubt be met with a sceptical shrug from some and awed applause from others.
“Melancholia is a potent beauty of a film, and Kirsten Dunst gives an incomparable performance.” Rolling Stone
