MELANCHOLIA to hit on November 11
Sure, most of the buzz surrounding Lars von Trier’s masterpiece MELANCHOLIA coming out of this year’s Cannes Film Festival surrounded the director and his controversial press conference comments, but the film itself speaks volumes itself.
A darkly poetic and intensely personal work, MELANCHOLIA may in fact stand to be the director’s best film (you can read our glowing review of the film here), and now you all can now set your calendar as the film has now gotten a release date.
Indiewire is reporting that the film has been set for a November 11 limited release, thanks to Magnolia. The film stars Kirsten Dunst, and is best described as von Trier’s take on the end of the world. And yes, it’s as happy as one would expect based on that description.
As mentioned above, the film has found itself a bit of controversy, but if the world is good, the film will hit and speak volumes for itself, in the face of von Trier’s comments. It’s truly a brilliant piece of filmmaking that was this writer’s favorite film coming out of Cannes this year. Definitely mark your calendars.
