If you’re a Jared Leto fan, then this is your lucky weekend. Leto has two movies arriving in theaters, and both of them feature two of his strongest performances to date. The one that will be the most talked about is Dallas Buyers Club. That awards contender is an all around good film, but the Jared Leto performances that will truly shake minds are in Mr. Nobody where Leto plays many versions of a man floating through several different versions of his life. The long-delayed film is finally coming to the United States this weekend. The only question is: is it one of the best films of 2009 or 2013?
The $47 million production is a pricey personal project for director Jaco Van Dormael, but the gamble paid off with a beautifully ambitious drama. With Mr. Nobody finally hitting theaters, we’ve got an exclusive clip to share.
Here’s a young Nemo Nobody meeting his future wives (played by Diane Kruger, Sarah Polley and Linh-Dan Pham):
If that clip piqued your interest, then Mr. Nobody is likely up your alley. If this strikes you as “pretentious,” then the film probably isn’t your cup of tea. Whatever the case, try to experience Mr. Nobody in a theater. It’s a gorgeous, big-picture film.
Mr. Nobody is now on VOD, available on iTunes, and opens in limited release November 1st.
