Robin Wright Front & Center on Latest US Poster for 'The Congress'
"Robin Wright at The Congress." Wait - "at"? Interesting choice, but so be it. Not the best poster, I must say, but nonetheless a film I want to keep bringing attention to as it nears release this summer. The Congress, written & directed by Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman (of the animated film Waltz with Bashir previously), is a rather fascinating existential sci-fi experiment of sorts starring Robin Wright, as Robin Wright, who goes into this futuristic animation world, that is actually rather beautifully animated in old school style. This poster is just Robin Wright going all digital, but there's so much more to the film. It was one of my favorites of Cannes 2013, and will thankfully be hitting theaters and hopefully VOD very soon from Drafthouse Films.
Here's Drafthouse Films' official poster for Ari Folman's The Congress, debuted originally on EW.com:
To recap, here's the official US trailer for Ari Folman's The Congress direct from Drafthouse Films:
The Congress, a loose adaptation of Stanislaw Lem’s dark, sci-fi comedy The Futurological Congress, is written and directed by Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir). The story follows actress Robin Wright playing a fictional version of herself as an aging actress who agrees to an experimental procedure whereby her youthful form is scanned and replicated for future use and profit by movie studios. But the consequences of her decision affect her life in ways she didn't consider. The film also stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Danny Huston, Harvey Keitel and Paul Giamatti and premiered as part of the Directors' Fortnight sidebar at Cannes in 2013. Drafthouse Films and Films We Like will release the film in limited theaters August 29th.
