Kirsten Dunst (Marie Antoinette) leads an all-star cast in acclaimed filmmaker Lars von Trier’s beautiful film about the end of the world.
At a lavish ceremony hosted by her sister (Charlotte Gainsbourg, Antichrist), the wedding of Justine (Dunst, in an award-winning performance) and her fiancé Michael (Alexander Skarsgård, True Blood) is marred by fractious familial exchanges and Justine’s battle with her own inner demons. Meanwhile, the mysterious planet Melancholia emerges from behind the sun and appears to be headed on an apocalyptic collision course with the Earth...
A tour-de-force of visually stunning filmmaking, this compelling existential science fiction drama grips from the thrilling opening sequence to its spectacular finale.
Audio commentary, four featurettes (About Melancholia, The Visual Style, The Universe, Melancholia Visual), theatrical trailer
