It’s Only the End of the World

Juste la Fin du Monde

Director: Xavier Dolan


After 12 years of estrangement, a writer returns to his hometown, planning on announcing his impending death to his family.

However, his mother, tempestuous siblings and beleaguered sister-in-law have their own personal grievances to air. As buried resentments threaten to surface and fits and feuds begin to unfold, all attempts at empathy are sabotaged by the family’s inability to listen and love.

Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, It’s Only the End of the World is a bold and stylistically daring melodrama performed with thunderous emotion.

Taut, tense and packed with explosive performances shot in claustrophobic close-up, it further confirms Dolan as one of the most singular talents in world cinema.
