Writer/director Ari Folman adapts prophetic science-fiction author Stanislaw Lem's novel The Futurological Congress to tell the tale of an actress (Robin Wright) who sells her likeness to a powerful film studio, which in turn transforms her essence into a chemical compound suitable for consumption by the masses. Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, Jon Hamm, and Paul Giamatti co-star in this ambitious feature that blends live-action with animation to offer a cautionary look at the future of entertainment.
