The smallest of moments pack the biggest emotional punch in this intimate and moving drama from the director of Lost in Translation. Deliberately slow-paced and artfully cool, it's a beautifully shot portrait of over-privileged disaffection, seen through the eyes of permanently hung-over Hollywood actor, Johnny Marco. Luxuriating at LA's legendary Chateau Marmont hotel, he's living the bachelor's dream: all wild parties and hot women. But the more Johnny indulges, the more numb he is to the world - until his 11-year-old daughter Cleo unexpectedly comes to stay. As a series of gentle encounters thaws their icy father/daughter relationship, Johnny starts to re-examine his empty existence, finally facing up to where he's really going.
Art imitates life with Mickey Rourke starring in this moving, dignified drama about a washed up wrestler making one final comeback.
