An acting and writing tour de force – Roger Ebert

Innovative film director Nicolas Roeg [THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (1976), DON'T LOOK NOW (1973)] brings to the screen an extraordinary story that imagines four of the most prominent figures of the 20th Century: Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and Joe McCarthy. They meet in a New York hotel and what unfolds is a thought-provoking, whimsical exploration of relativity, empty celebrity, helplessness, and hope.

WINNER: Technical Grand Prize at Cannes Film Festival.
