Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, Juste la fin du monde is a magnificent, thunderous drama about home and familial roots. Louis, who is a terminally ill writer, travels home after 12 years away to inform them of his condition. It’s the proverbial prodigal’s return, except that Louis’ family is not so ready to forgive him, and his arrival precipitates chaos. (Steve Gravestock, TIFF)

FILM ARTICLE:Xavier Dolan’s newest film, which represents Canada’s shot at a best foreign-language Oscar this year, is also the most nominated film at the upcoming Canadian Screen Awards.” – Edmonton Journal 

FILM ARTICLE: “It’s Only the End of the World is a deeply pessimistic film on the subject of “family”: which emerges as not a supportive, nurturing institution, but something unbearable and clinging.” – The Guardian
