It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde)

Critics Consensus

It's Only the End of the World is stocked with talent and boasts a story steeped in conflict, but the end result proves a disappointing misfire from writer-director Xavier Dolan.

Movie Info

After 12 years of absence, a writer goes back to his home town, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fueled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts at empathy are sabotaged by people's incapacity to listen and love.

Audience Reviews for It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde)

  • Dec 04, 2016
    Dolan extracts some intense performances from his talented cast and makes an extremely exhausting drama that never feels like a filmed play but rather a depressing and claustrophobic experience (full of close-ups) that forces us to stay in the company of a horrible family.
