CURZON - WINNER OF THE BAFTA FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO BRITISH CINEMA
Anomalisa

Anomalisa

From the mind of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) comes Anomalisa, a tender, touching and achingly funny black comedy, filmed entirely in breathtaking stop motion animation.

Michael Stone, a husband, father and successful motivational speaker, is crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to a customer service convention in Cincinnati he checks into his hotel and prepares to once more go through the motions. But this time a chance meeting with Lisa, an unassuming baked goods sales rep from a small country town, throws the dullness into disarray and Michael feels he may have just met someone who can make a change...

Smart, humorously absurd and bracingly humane, Anomalisa is a technically stunning work of animation, beautifully orchestrated by co-director Duke Johnson and scored by Carter Burwell (Carol, In Bruges, Fargo). Drawing brilliant performances from David Thewlis, Jennifer Jason-Leigh and Tom Noonan it sees Charlie Kaufman at his daring, dazzling best.
