It's Only the End of the World (French: Juste la fin du monde) is a 2016 drama film written, edited and directed by Xavier Dolan. The film is based on the play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce and stars Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, and Vincent Cassel. It is about a young playwright who reunites with his family after a 12-year absence to inform them he is going to die.
A co-production of Canada and France, it was shot in Montreal and Laval, Quebec, beginning in 2015. The small core of actors were selected against typecasting, with Dolan and Cotillard challenged by the awkwardness in dialogue inherent in Lagarce's work.
The film screened at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where it received mixed reactions from critics. Dolan became the second Canadian director to receive the Cannes Grand Prix. It also won six Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Motion Picture, and three César Awards, including Best Director.
