Mister Lonely (2007) - Synopsis

A lyrical examination of our celebrity obsessed culture, MISTER LONELY follows the story of a Michael Jackson impersonator (Diego Luna) who meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator (Samantha Morton) in Paris. She invites him to return to Scotland with her to live in a commune of celebrity impersonators including her husband, Charlie Chaplin (Denis Lavant), the Pope (James Fox), the Queen (Anita Pallenberg) and Abraham Lincoln (Richard Strange). Poignant and visually enthralling, MISTER LONELY is a delight to watch and shows Korine at the top of his game with this poetic study of identity, impersonation, love and loss
