ANOMALISA (2015) Movie Poster: Charlie Kaufman’s Characters Mirror Him


Anomalisa Movie Poster. There’s a new screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, and lucky for us, it was turned into a stop-motion film with the help of director Duke Johnson (and a fuckload of animators, effects artists and behind-the-scenes people you won’t hear about outside of featurettes or DVD extras). For my money, this movie looks like an absolute blind-buy. The trailer looks great, Kaufman always expertly handles inner emotional turmoil and existential angst, and, well, there’s a new poster that reminds me this will be good.

P.S. – Anomalisa is scored by Carter Burwell of In Bruges and Where The Wild Things Are fame. So bring some tissues.

Take a look at the new movie poster for Anomalisa (2015) below!

According to Slashfilm, “Every character in Anomalisa is fascinating and boldly realized, combining powerful vocal performances from the lead actors with beautiful and expressive animation. Thewlis’ Michael may be the lead character, but his it’s his relationship with Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh, having one helluva year between this and The Hateful Eight) that forms the heart of the film. And Tom Noonan‘s performance deserves to be discovered in a theater.”

The press release has some more detailed insight into the production and synopsis of the film. “Michael Stone, husband, father and respected author of “How May I Help You Help Them?” is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he’s scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life. A beautifully tender and absurdly humorous dreamscape, from the brilliant minds of Charlie Kaufman (SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK) and Duke Johnson (“Community” episode, Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas), this stop-motion animation wonder features the vocal cast of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan and David Thewlis and a stirring strings-based score by Carter Burwell.  The darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man’s long night of the soul, ANOMALISA confirms Charlie Kaufman’s place amongst the most important of American filmmakers, and announces Duke Johnson as a major creative force.”
