David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the 2003 novel hits our screens soon, in amongst the highly publicized troubles of leading actor Robert Pattinson’s recent private life.
Keeping quite true to the novel, Cronenberg keeps a lot of the original lengthy dialogue in the movie, which follows a young billionaire Eric Packer (played by Robert Pattinson) during a seemingly average day, turning a ride in his limo into something a lot darker and more revealing along the way. Pattinson who is knowingly trying to rid his teen heart-throb persona, finds his way in this dark portrayal of the cold and self-destructive nature of Eric Packer.
Be warned, Cosmopolis is definitely not a main stream popcorn movie for a Friday night after work, with insane comedy satire at times and intensely wordy dialogue in others, you will need to give it your full concentration.
Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton and Paul Giamatti also star in the complex film, that after it’s release in Cannes, promises to impress intellectually, so be prepared to watch it more than once to get the full effect.
