Will this help lessen the somewhat odd antagonism that's so often been directed towards her amongst movie nerds these past, what, 10 years?

Despite Claire’s best efforts, the wedding is a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. Meanwhile, a planet called Melancholia is heading directly towards Earth...
