We’ve had a few glimpses of Oscar winner Charlie Kaufman’s stop-motion film Anomalisa and now we have the full trailer and it’s a stunner. Melancholy yet beautiful, it’s just what one would expect from the mind that created Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Being John Malkovich. The film is co-directed by Duke Johnson (Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole) and scored by Carter Burwell (Fargo, Carol).
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]Michael Stone (David Thewlis), husband, father and respected author of How May I Help You Help Them? is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he’s scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, Michael checks into the Fregoli Hotel and meets Lisa Hesselman (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a socially awkward sales rep from Akron who may or may not be the love of his life. Directed by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson and written by Charlie Kaufman, ANOMALISA is a darkly comedic, stop-motion journey.[/box]
Anomalisa will be in limited release from Paramount on December 30th and go wider in January.
