The Congress is a feature that mixes live-action with animation and follows Robin Wright as an aging actress who sells her likeness to a movie studio in order to care for her disabled child. As a result, her image can be used any way the studio pleases and it begins to have a detrimental effect on her life that she never anticipated.
It’s good to see an animated project that isn’t kid-skewed. Fingers crossed that audiences react well to this. Otherwise Keitel, Huston, and Giamatti will end up voicing pigeons in a DreamWorks cartoon about a cockroach who dreams of a career on Broadway. (The Playlist)
