In the movie Anomalisa, 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 (Being John Malkovich and Adaptation) 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.
