A writer returns to his hometown, planning to announce his upcoming death to his family, causing fits, feuds and old resentments to resurface. Part of the Film Unit Autumn Programme.

Director: Xavier Dolan Cast: Gaspard Ulliel, Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux Country: Canada Language: French Xavier Dolan explores themes of family and mortality in this film based on the French play Juste la fin du monde. A 34-year-old gay playwright (Gaspard Ulliel) visits his family who he has not seen for 12 years, only to announce his imminent death. His return unveils the complicated relations between the family members. These complex characters are powerfully portrayed by five of the most famous and praised actors of modern French cinema. Xavier Dolan's direction enhances their acting and gives tension and depth to the characters individually, to the family and, more exquisitely, to the film.
