mr. nobody

Four years ago, a little-known bizzaro drama named Mr. Nobody premiered at the Venice Film Festival. The film starred Jared LetoDiane Kruger, Rhys Ifans, and Sarah Polley, and despite that list of talent, the film has taken four years to hit stateside. The movie opened successfully in Belgium, for instance, three years ago. Whatever the reason is for the delay, it’s a shame because Mr. Nobody, by far and away, is the best film of 2013.

I say 2013 because the damn thing is finally coming out this year. Magnolia has set a VOD and iTunes release for September 26th and a limited theatrical run to kick off on November 1st. I would say see this movie as soon as you can, but it’s a gorgeous film that should be experienced in a theater.

Here’s an old internationl trailer which gives you a decent sense of what to expect:

If you were underwhelmed by the dramatic simplicity and sentimentality of Cloud Atlas, this is probably the movie you were hoping for. Mr. Nobody is about the choices you make in life, and how the big and little ones can affect the way things turn out. In the film you see different versions of how Mr. Nobody’s (Jared Leto) life would’ve turned out had he made certain choices, and while it can be overwhelming (and funny, entertaining, and moving), it’s more challenging than frustrating.

For further proof Mr. Nobody is coming out, here’s a new poster for it (via Indiewire):

Mr. Nobody will be available on VOD and iTunes on September 26th.
