DIRECTOR: HARMONY KORINE
CAST: DIEGO LUNA, SAMANTHA MORTON, DENIS LAVANT
A comeback film of sorts, completed after a costly struggle with personal demons, Mister Lonely finds Korine in a somber, sober state of mind—but as exuberantly creative as ever. In a commune in the Scottish Highlands, a group of outcast celebrity impersonators has gathered, among them Diego Luna’s Michael Jackson, Samantha Morton’s Marilyn Monroe, and Denis Lavant’s Charlie Chaplin. Trouble soon comes to this would-be Utopia, bringing with it a heavy melancholy, lightened by passages of inimitable brio, including skydiving nuns and Abraham Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address while spinning a basketball on his finger.
