ANOMALISA
2015, Paramount, 90 min, USA, Dir: Duke Johnson, Charlie Kaufman

For a customer service guru, Michael Stone (David Thewlis) is unusually alienated; everyone he meets when he checks into Cincinnati’s Fregoli hotel sounds the same to him. Everyone except for Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a customer service rep who may offer Michael a fleeting chance at real connection. Kaufman’s first foray into stop-motion animation was the Grand Jury Prize winner at the Venice International Film Festival. “Its emotional power creeps out from under the subtle humor and leaves a subcutaneous imprint that lingers long after the movie is over.” - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
