A young boy stands on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? An infinity of possibilities rise from this decision. As long as he doesn’t choose, anything is possible. Every life deserves to be lived.
The little blurb accompanying seems to leave out a whole lot of plot. To be fair, that is the very nature of “the blurb,” but it kind of sells this movie short. While said blurb intrigues me, the actual trailer did a much better job of making me want to see this movie right now. Right, right now.
The futuristic aspect was unexpected, but I definitely liked it, and the idea of this man’s life branching off in different directions as it does (I’m not sure if these forks in the road are literal or just wishful thinking) looks engaging.
Mr. Nobody stars Jared Leto, Sarah Polley, Diane Kruger, Linh Dan Pham, Natasha Little, and Rhys Ifans. It has been kicked around various film festivals since 2009, but will finally receive a wide release November 1.
