Though it wasn't greeted with the same rapturous festival welcome most of his other movies have enjoyed, Xavier Dolan's It's Only The End Of The World still finds him gathering some impressive talent in one film. Take a look at the first trailer below.

Adapted from Jean-Luc Lagarce’s play, Dolan’s new script finds writer Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) heading back to his hometown after 12 years away, intending to tell his family of his impending death. But any attempts to drum up empathy are scuppered by the feuding family members, with the clan showing a singular inability to listen and love.

This one also boasts the acting prowess off Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Nathalie Baye, so we're interested to see what the wider world this of this one. We may have to wait a little longer, however, as while the film will be seen in France and elsewhere in Europe (plus Canada and Russia) on September 21, there's no sign of a UK release yet. Bloomin' Brexit...
