Each year Movieline lists the years best films and this year critic Alison Willmore chose Melancholia for the number one spot. The Lars Von Trier film features Kirsten Dunst, Alexander Skarsgard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Kiefer Sutherland. It tells the story of a planet, named Melancholia that threatens life on earth. Dunst stars as a new bride that can’t seem to escape the clutches of depression.
This is what they said;
“Melancholia is already a devastating look at an illness that leaves you unable to connect to what life has to offer, even on an extravagant wedding day that seems to compress half a lifetime into a night.”
Congratulations to Alexander Skarsgard, Kristen Dunst, Lars Von Trier and the rest of the cast and crew!
