Plot Summary: From director David Cronenberg ("A History of Violence," "Dead Ringers," "The Fly," "Eastern Promises") and based on the prophetic novel by Don DeLillo, comes "Cosmopolis," a contemporary thriller that turns into a wild, hypnotic odyssey through our new millenniumís obsessions with power, money, control, information, technology, violence, sex, mortality, revolution, destruction and ultimately, redemption.
Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) Ė a 28-year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager Ė as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his fatherís old barber, while remotely wagering his companyís massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packerís luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, a parade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packerís perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.
