Winner of the Best Actress Prize at the Cannes Film Festival — and the movie that writer-director Lars von Trier was promoting when he got banned from the fest for his eyebrow-raising comments involving Adolph Hitler — the visually stimulating Melancholia is landing in Charlotte via a special four-day run presented by the Back Alley Film Series. Kirsten Dunst delivers a quietly powerful performance as Justine, a newly hitched bride whose depression finds a symbolic outlet in Melancholia, a planet that’s heading directly toward Earth. Charlotte Gainsbourg, herself a Cannes prize winner for a von Trier film (Antichrist), co-stars as Justine’s put-upon sister, while Kiefer Sutherland appears as Gainsbourg’s rational husband.
