"The actors, all tremendous, make the film sing" - The Financial Times.


Canadian enfant terrible Xavier Dolan's It's Only the End of the World - winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes - boasts a fantastic ensemble cast, evidencing a growing casting clout.

Gaspard Ulliel plays Louis, a writer; Nathalie Baye his whimsical mother; Léa Seydoux his sullen, punky sister; Vincent Cassel his volatile brother Antoine and Marion Cotillard, Antoine's diminutive wife Catherine. The story follows Louis as he returns to the troubled family home with an awful secret to share. Their reunion is something like a volcanic eruption, as Dolan exploits (much as he did in Mommy) the dramatic power and claustrophobic nature of dysfunctional familial love, and the difficulty - perhaps, impossibility - of maintaining such toxic relationships.
