IT’S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD
JUSTE LA FIN DU MONDE
2016, 99 min, Canada/France, Dir: Xavier Dolan

Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan’s latest film revolves around Louis (César Award winner Gaspard Ulliel), a terminally ill playwright who returns from Paris to his family in small-town France after an absence of 12 years. As Louis looks for the right moment to reveal his secret, he also struggles to keep the family from tearing itself apart as long-simmering tensions arise from his resentful brother, emotionally troubled sister and overwrought mother. Intense, emotionally raw and supremely stylish, the film boasts an all-star cast including Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassell, Léa Seydoux and the legendary Nathalie Baye. Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and Best Director at the César Awards.
