Kirsten Dunst scored big at the Cannes Film Festival by bagging the best actress award for her work in “Melancholia.” As you bastards know, the film’s directed by the now-controversial Lars von Trier, who’s now banned from attending the festival due to his somewhat drunken comments to the press that he understood Hitler and that he ‘was a Nazi’. What’s up with all these dudes in high places saying shit against Jews?! Don’t they understand what makes this system tick? Note to all talented/famous people looking to talk shit about certain segments of the human population: You can’t take shots at Jews, Prophet Mohammad & gays! Instead, why not make fun of black people, Muslim extremists or even Mexicans b/c apparently you can do that w/ complete immunity!!
Anyway, for those of you who don’t know much about the film, here’s more:
The film begins with the destruction of Earth and then jumps back in time. The story will be about two sisters, Justine and Claire (Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg), who are becoming increasingly distant from each other. There will be a wedding during the first part of the film between Justine and Michael (Alexander Skarsgård). Soon after the wedding Justine becomes melancholic, which makes her stay calm when Earth is threatened by a collision with another planet that has recently emerged from behind the sun, while Claire, on the other hand, becomes fearful of what is to come. Trier has said that he considers all of his previous films to end happily, and that this will be the first with an unhappy ending. [Source]
