  1. Directed by Ari Folman (Oscar (R)-nominated Waltz With Bashir), starring Robin Wright (“House Of Cards”; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Jon Hamm (AMC’s “Mad Men”), Paul Giamatti (Sideways; John Dies At The End) and Harvey Keitel (Taxi Driver; Bad Lieutenant), The Congress blends live-action and psychedelic animation as an aging, out-of-work actress (Wright playing an alternate reality version of herself) accepts her final job: preserving her digital image for a future Hollywood. Empire Magazine proclaims it “an extraordinary and very touching film that exists somewhere in the twilight zone between the existential brainteasers of Charlie Kaufman and the psychedelic wonders of Hayao Miyazaki.”
