STARTS AUGUST 1ST
Friday August 1 – 9:30PM
The new film from Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 12 Monkeys). Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) stars as an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, he is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon), aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the lack thereof – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and a would-be digital therapist (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.
