Robin Wright in The Congress

EW's GRADE
C

Details Limited Release: Aug 29, 2014; Length: 122 Minutes; With: Danny Huston, Harvey Keitel and Robin Wright; Distributor: Drafthouse Films

Robin Wright plays an actress named Robin Wright, whose career is in decline and who's offered a ton of money (not to mention youthful immortality) by selling her scanned likeness to a slimy studio boss (Danny Huston) to use as he sees fit. Ari Folman's meta-commentary on Hollywood in the soulless digital age starts off promisingly, like a Charlie Kaufman mind scrambler. But then it spirals into logy animated nonsense. The premise might have worked better if Wright's career really was in the dumps instead of at a House of Cards peak. Maybe Folman should've called Sean Young? (Also on VOD) C
