Mr. Nobody

Movie: Mr. Nobody
Director: Jaco van Dormael
Produced by:
Released By: Magnolia Pictures
MPAA Rating: R

A man close to death ponders the many lives he might have led in this fantasy from director and screenwriter Jaco van Dormael. Nemo Nobody is 117-years-old, ill and facing his last days as he looks back on his past and a particular crucial moment — at the age of nine, Nemo’s parents divorced, and as his mother and father stood on a train platform, he had to choose who he would go with, and whether he would live in the United States or Great Britain. Either choice would bring with it a wide variety of possibilities regarding the sort of life he would lead, and Nemo imagines nearly all of them, including two different wives — sweet but emotionally blank Jeanne and lovely but troubled Elise — and another woman, Anna, who he loves but can not marry. But as Nemo considers the many different paths his life could have taken, his memory begins to fail him, and he finds it increasingly difficult to be certain which was his real life and which is a product of his imagination. Mr. Nobody also stars Thomas Byrne as nine-year-old Nemo and Toby Regbo as Nemo in his teenage years.
