Robin Wright plays Robin Wright, an aging actress who receives one last chance to cash in on her talents: to be scanned and preserved as a virtual and ageless movie star. Isreali director Ari Folmans follow up to Waltz With Bashir is ambitious in almost every way, combining live action and various styles of hand drawn animation into a visual and philosophical sci-fi powerhouse. With The Congress, Folman made a conscious attempt to avoid the politics of the Middle East but delves into an entire host of other ideas. Adding the talents of Harvey Keitel and Paul Giamatti, this film's unique audacity must be seen to be believed.
