‘Melancholia’ Will End Your World This October

I begin to doubt myself every single time I post an article highlighting Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. Sure, it’s about the end of the world, but it looks more like a drama than something for genre fans. Having just caught a screening of the film, I can assure you that, while a drama on the surface, Melancholia is a deeply disturbing film that will rock your very core.

Starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, Stellan Skarsgard, Udo Kier and John Hurt, Magnolia Pictures has announced that they will release the dramatic thriller on VOD October 7, before sticking it in limited theaters on November 11. Although, I’m pretty sure this isn’t the kind of film you want to see before your Thanksgiving holiday…

Dunst and Gainsbourg play sisters whose lives are drifting apart as the universe spectacularly unravels in what Von Trier describes as a beautiful movie about the end of the world.
