Sci-fi master Stanislaw Lem story-based

PanARMENIAN.Net - The U.S. The Congress trailer has arrived for Waltz with Bashir director Ari Folman’s long-awaited follow-up feature. The film is a live-action/animation hybrid adaptation of the classic Stainslaw Lem short story “The Futurological Congress” and follows an aging actress desperate for work (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) who takes one last job to support her disabled son (Kodi-Smit McPhee). The work she finds has her scanned into an animated world where the company will own her image, but she’ll be forever young.

According to Collider, reviews have been strong for the thought-provoking pic, with editor Matt Goldberg calling it “as fascinating as it is gorgeous.”

The film also stars Jon Hamm, Danny Huston, Harvey Keitel, and Paul Giamatti and opens in theaters on August 29.
