A stop-motion animation tour de force, Anomalisa tells the story of Michael Stone (voice of David Thewlis)—a husband, father, and respected author crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, he checks into a hotel and meets Lisa Hesselman (voice of Jennifer Jason Leigh), a socially awkward sales rep from Akron who may or may not be the love of his life. Written by Charlie Kaufman and codirected by Kaufman and Duke Johnson, this darkly comedic and surreal journey takes us into the mind of a man whose dark night of the soul becomes a Kafkaesque—make that a Kaufmanesque—nightmare. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Venice Film Festival. 2015, US, 90 minutes.
