How fortunate I am that Kirsten Dunst and Lars von Trier share a birthday - now every April 30th I can call it Melancholia Day and I can think about this movie (my numero uno favorite of 2011) and quote it and throw myself a Melancholia party where I serve plates of ash to people and then we all take turns having sad unenthusiastic sex with Alexander Skarsgard. What fun!
What would you do at a Melancholia-themed party?
