Melancholia (2011)

Director: Lars von Trier
Stars: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Keifer Sutherland

Lars von Trier's latest odyssey assaults the upper class with a crashing planet. Kirsten Dunst plays Justine, the glowing bride who, on her wedding night, can't help but create drama—as if there wasn't enough, what with the planet heading for Earth.

Featuring some of the most stunning cinematography of the Danish director's career, including shots that recreate works of fine art, Melancholia is powerful and thought-provoking—and all without having to resort to genital mutilation.
