The Congress is a bizarre new film from Ari Folman, visionary director of 2008’s Waltz With Bashir, and features Robin Wright as an aging, out-of-work actress accepts one last job, though the consequences of her decision affect her in ways she didn’t consider. If you think that it’s weird that her character’s name is also Robin Wright, wait until the animation kicks in…
Also in the film are Harvey Keitel, Jon Hamm, Paul Giamatti, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Danny Huston and Sami Gayle, and it looks like a must-see.
The Congress is out in the UK on August 15th.
