Robin Wright has been back in the news recently, thanks to her acclaimed performance in the Netflix show House of Cards – and the buzz around her looks set to continue this summer. Why? Because in her new film The Congress, the actress essays the role of “Robin Wright,” a fictionalized version of herself who sells her digital likeness to a Hollywood studio – allowing her computerized image to appear in any film the company wants – so she can care for her ailing son.
Drafthouse Films will release The Congress – which costars Jon Hamm, Harvey Keitel, and Danny Huston – to iTunes and VOD on July 24 followed by a theatrical run starting August 29. But you can check out the trailer for this new film from director Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir) below and, exclusively, the movie’s poster above.
