About the film

Born from a therapy session during writer/ director, Lars von Trier’s treatment for depression, it’s the film that won Kirsten Dunst not one, but two best actress awards! Melancholia is a psychological-drama, which explores the observation that depression sufferers have a tendency to remain peaceful in the face of catastrophe.

The film follows two sisters as a rogue planet sets a collision course for earth. While one sister struggles to find happiness on what should be the happiest day of her life, the other struggles to maintain composure in the face of sure disaster.

Trivia bite: Lead actress, Kirsten Dunst and Director, Lars von Trier share the same birthday.
