35mm presentation - In director and co-writer David Cronenberg's hauntingly prophetic psychological drama Cosmopolis, he addresses the global financial crisis of today's world. New York City, not-too-distant-future: Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson), a 28-year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a civilization ahead of this one, watches a dark shadow cast over Wall Street. As he is chauffeured across midtown Manhattan to get a haircut at his father's old barber, his anxious eyes are glued to the yuan's exchange rate: it is mounting against all expectations, destroying Eric's bet against it. Meanwhile, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the city's streets. As the threats of the real world infringe upon his cloud of virtual convictions, Packer's paranoia intensifies as he pieces together clues that lead him to a most terrifying secret: his imminent assassination. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis illustrates how the organic and the psychological are inextricably intertwined, and how society's repressed impulses and paranoia can run wild. Also starring Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Samantha Morton.
