Melancholia (2011)

A meditation on depression and the end of the world. The first half of the film focuses on the emotionally troubled newlywed Justine as her sister, Claire, throws her a lavish wedding party. As her lack of emotional stability begins to take a toll on Justine's brand new marriage as well as the party -- and old wounds are exposed -- Claire's wealthy husband John knows a great deal about a planet that is on a possible collision course with Earth. The second half of the movie focuses on Claire, who ends up taking her sister in after the marriage collapses, and also begins to fear that John is hiding apocalyptically bad news.
