French-Canadian auteur Xavier Dolan (Mommy) assembles some of the greatest French acting talent for his dazzling sixth film, It's Only the End of the World, based on a play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce. After 12 years of absence, a writer (Gaspard Ulliel) goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by bitterness and fear, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen, and love. Starring Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Léa Seydoux, It’s Only the End of the World is a taut, tense and stylistically daring melodrama performed with explosive emotion. Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, it further confirms Xavier Dolan as one of the most singular talents in world cinema.
