The Congress


Robin Wright plays herself in the not-too-distant future in this original high concept sci-fi film.  As an aging actress in Hollywood that's made some poor choices, her career is quickly fading.  But when the head of Miramount studios makes her one final, and somewhat surreal offer, she has no choice but to accept.  And then things get really trippy.  Half live action film and half animation.  Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, Paul Giamatti, and Jon Hamm round out the amazing cast.

'The Congress' is now available on Video on Demand.

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  It's definitely not for everyone, and I'm not sure it's fully satisfying, but it gets a LOT of credit in my book for being experimental, ambitious, and totally original.  See it if you want to see something completely different.
