You couldn’t ask for a more impressively interesting, lauded and edgy pedigree than COSMOPOLIS has. The first movie adaptation of great contemporary American novelist Don Delillo, COSMOPOLIS stars Robert Pattinson (TWILIGHT), the ever-wondrous, ever-adventuresome Oscar-winning Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton (JESUS’ SON) and Paul Giamatti (SIDEWAYS), and is directed by idiosyncratic genius David Cronenberg (NAKED LUNCH, THE FLY.) “A weird, heady and entrancing portrait of individual alienation in a super-rich, corporate world where money, sex, love, happiness and death are rapidly losing all meaning”—Time Out. The place is New York in the near future: Eric Packer, a 28 year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a more advanced civilization, is chauffeured across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut at his father’s old barber. As his past and future wives, lovers, friends and enemies appear briefly in his car/world, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the city’s streets. Petrified as the threats of the real world infringe upon his cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies during the course of his 24-hour cross-town odyssey. Packer starts to piece together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination. R. 108 Min.
