Lars von Trier's much-anticipated motion picture event Nymphomaniac is being released as two full-length feature films. Volume I is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), an older bachelor who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by Stacy Martin). Volume I also stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Connie Nielsen and Udo Kier. Nymphomaniac marks von Trier's follow-up to his critically acclaimed film Melancholia, and is his third consecutive collaboration with Gainsbourg. A groundbreaking filmmaker for more than two decades, von Trier's other film credits include Antichrist, Dogville, Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the Waves. Note: Nymphomaniac contains graphic depictions of sexuality to a degree unprecedented in a mainstream feature film. NO ONE UNDER 18 WILL BE ADMITTED. Official Web Site
