Mister Lonely

A Michael Jackson impersonator (Diego Luna) performs on Paris streets. At a retirement home show, he falls for a beautiful Marilyn Monroe look-alike (Samantha Morton) who suggests he move to a commune of impersonators. There he finds everyone prepping for the commune's first-ever gala: Abe Lincoln, Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Stooges, the Queen, the Pope, Madonna, Buckwheat, Sammy Davis Jr...and also Marilyn's daughter Shirley Temple and her possessive husband Charlie Chaplin. Meanwhile, a miracle is happening in a Latin American jungle (cue Werner Herzog).

"Ebert once remarked that Mr. Korine had 'the soul of a real filmmaker,' a judgment MISTER LONELY decisively confirms. It demonstrates [he] has the power to touch, to unsettle and to charm." -Scott, NY Times

"Downright elegant...strangely sweet. When Diego Luna, playing a Michael Jackson impersonator, jubilantly leads an old folks home in a chant of "live forever!" and "don't die!" I wanted to leap from my seat." -Olsen, LA Times
