Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
IT’S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD
JUSTE LA FIN DU MONDE
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.
Emmanuelle Bercot earned a Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her affecting turn as Tony, a young woman sidelined by a skiing accident who falls in love with the charming if tempestuous Georgio (Vincent Cassel, also superb). In sharp contrast to typical movie romances, MON ROI has a raw honesty that draws viewers to these characters even as clouds gather on their horizon. “Maïwenn remains underappreciated by the critical community, but that will change after the world experiences MON ROI, a movie that may sound anti-romantic but is just the opposite: boldly ultra-romantic, of the sort that has turned French pics (like JULES AND JIM or A MAN AND A WOMAN) into worldwide hits before.” - Peter Debruge, Variety In French with English subtitles.
Acclaimed director Matteo Garrone (GOMORRAH) makes his English-language debut with this fantasy-horror anthology film, which takes the classic PENTAMERONE collection of fairy tales as its source. An international cast including Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Vincent Cassel and Toby Jones stars in a trio of stylish fables exploring love, desire and obsession.
