Synopsis

Decades after catapulting to stardom, Robin Wright decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. Twenty years later, with her digital double rising to stardom and contract expiring, she is invited to take part in The Congress convention and make her comeback.

Our take

Ari Folman followed the Oscar-nominated Waltz With Bashir with this striking adaptation of Stanisław “Solaris” Lem’s novella. Reconfiguring Lem’s tale of an illusory utopia into a biting Hollywood satire, Folman blends live-action with hallucinatory animation for a vivid, sci-fi head trip.
