Charlotte Gainsbourg in Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac."
Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" has gone to Magnolia Pictures for US distribution, following their collaboration on "Melancholia." The deal was made for $2 million after footage was screened in Berlin. "Nymphomaniac," the third in Von Trier's "Depression" Trilogy (the first was "Antichrist"), stars his to-go leading lady Charlotte Gainsbourg, Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgard, Jamie Bell and Christian Slater.

As always the content is heavy, but with its graphic sexuality--which will be real, not simulated-- "Nymphomaniac" may become Von Trier's most controversial film yet. Gainsbourg stars as a self-proclaimed nympho who is attacked and then discovered in an alley by a stranger (Skarsgard). She recounts her sexual experiences that led her to where she is while recovering from the trauma.
