Prodigious talent Xavier Dolan comes of age with his dazzling sixth film, It's Only the End of the World, based on the play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce and featuring an all-star cast of top French actors. After 12 years of estrangement a writer (Gaspard Ulliel) returns to his hometown, planning on announcing his impending death to his family. However, his mother (Nathalie Baye), tempestuous siblings (Vincent Cassel and LÃ©a Seydoux) and beleaguered sister-in-law (Marion Cotillard) have their own personal grievances to air. As buried resentments threaten... to surface and fits and feuds begin to unfold, all attempts at empathy are sabotaged by the family's inability to listen and love. Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2016, It's Only the End of the World is a bold and stylistically daring melodrama performed with thunderous emotion. Taut, tense and packed with explosive performances shot in claustrophobic close-up, it further confirms Dolan as one of the most singular talents in world cinema. [show more]
