Directed by Charlie Kaufman & Duke Johnson
2015, USA, 90 min

The writer of Adaptation, Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind has created a remarkable new stop motion animated film about loneliness and love and melancholy. Charlie Kaufman’s breathtaking, Kickstarter-funded stop-motion romance had one of the best receptions during this year’s fall festival circuit. It premiered around the world to positive reviews at the Telluride Film Festival, and followed that with a strong showing in Venice, where it won the festival’s Grand Jury Prize. Nominated for Best Animated Film at the Academy Awards the film centers on Michael Stone, a middle-aged married motivational speaker (voiced by David Thewlis), haunted by memories of a woman he walked out on 11 years earlier. During a business trip, he encounters a woman (voiced by Jennifer Jason Leigh) who changes his dour outlook on his existence.

Reviews

As haunting and hypnotic an R-rated love story for grownups as you’ll see anywhere...unique and unforgettable filtered through Kaufman's searching mind and soulful brilliance, the result is a masterpiece. - ROLLING STONE
