TIFF teaser: Melancholia, an apocalyptic family drama
We love Lars von Trier (he brought us Dogville and Dancer in the Dark), and we love Armageddon. Von Trier’s latest effort, Melancholia, combines the two, and includes Kirsten Dunst, who we hope is less annoying after her completion of rehab. Since the dreary family drama was already perfected by Ordinary People, this modern take introduces a rogue star on a collision path with earth. Where’s Harry Stamper when you need him?
