Description
Four unnamed people who look and sound a lot like Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and Joseph McCarthy converge in one New York City hotel room for a compelling, visually inventive adaptation of Terry Johnson's play. With a combination of whimsy and dread, director Nicolas Roeg creates a fun-house-mirror picture of cold war America that questions the nature of celebrity and plays on a society's simmering nuclear fears.
