‘The Congress’ trailer is animation for adults

This is one of the coolest looking movies of the year. Ari Folman’s last movie, Waltz with Bashir, was an incredible, innovative mix of animation and live action that wowed me. His follow-up, The Congress, looks even more interesting. Robin Wright stars as “Robin Wright,” an actress who has her entire identity scanned and replicated to stay young forever in a virtual world owned by her movie studio. The flick also stars Harvey Keitel and Paul Giamatti. It looks pretty cool both visually and conceptually. The Congress premieres at Cannes this year, and hopefully will be picked up for wide release soon after.
