The Francophone Movie Club

Juste la fin du monde. Friday, March 3, 2017 2 7 pm, Buchanan A 101. Free admission.

A Xavier Dolan movie starring Nathalie Baye,  Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Gaspard Ulliel.

After 12 years of absence, a writer goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen, and love.
