It’s a big day for Canadian director Xavier Dolan, who just won the Grand Prix prize at Cannes for his new film “It’s Only the End of the World.”;

The French-Canadian drama stars Marion Cotillard, Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel, and was awarded Cannes’ second-highest honour at this year’s festival.

The festival’s coveted Palme d’Or — Cannes’ highest honour — was awarded to director Ken Loach for his film “I, Daniel Blake.”;

“It’s Only the End of the World”; has earned decidedly mixed reviews at Cannes, and Dolan made headlines when he slammed a critic’s review deriding the film as “a shrill, shrieking drama.”;

“This is not journalism,”; Dolan said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “It’s gossip. It’s pretending to be a sophisticated analysis, but really it’s cheap psychology.”;
