Xavier Dolan’s feature “It’s Only The End Of The World” has a new poster, just in time for the Cannes Film Festival. The latest image shows someone’s eyes being covered from behind.
The drama is inspired by the Jean-Luc Lagarde play of the same name and stars Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel. The film focuses on a writer who returns home after a 12-year absence to announce his upcoming death and the empathy and love that comes from his family and friends in unexpected ways.
The Cannes-winning Canadian director started production on the film at the end of May last year. It’s been said that his movie is one of the most-anticipated features to be shown at this year’s festival in France.
“I’m absolutely thrilled about ‘It’s Only the End of the World,’ especially for the work with the actors,” Dolan previously said. “It is my utmost priority and most visceral passion to work with inspiring talent on set and not only direct them, but, as an actor-director, act with and through them, even from the other side of the mirror.”
In 2014, Dolan’s film “Mommy” took the Grand Jury prize after landing in Cannes’ competition lineup. He will next shoot “The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan” with Kit Harington and Jessica Chastain, which was originally set to be filmed before “World.”
“It’s Only The End Of The World” will open in Quebec on September 21.
