The angelic Kirsten Dunst dons a glorious wedding dress for the film Melancholia, in which she stars alongside Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Alexander Skarsgård. In the Lars von Trier directed drama, Dunst plays a depressed bride trying to cope with family tensions and the dysfunctional relationships surrounding her. Meanwhile, a distant planet called Melancholia threatens to collide into and destroy Earth. The film made its debut at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where Dunst was awarded Best Actress for her performance. You can catch the movie and even get a glimpse of Kirsten herself at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
