The Congress

From the director of Waltz With Bashir comes this subversive, self-referential mind-bender. Actress Robin Wright plays an actress named Robin Wright, who decides to take on one final job--preserving her digital likeness for future Hollywood. Twenty years later, her computerized avatar is a superstar under the creative control of the studio's head animator. This trippy mix of live-action and animation features the voices and faces of Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, Jon Hamm, Paul Giamatti and others. It's (very loosely) based on a novel by Polish writer Stanislaw Lem. If you know who that is, that should give you some idea of how out-there this sci-fi drama is. 122 minutes Unrated.
