A special preview of Harmony Korine's unclassifiable but definitely wonderful new film. Diego Luna plays a young Michael Jackson impersonator who is befriended by 'Marilyn Monroe' (Samantha Morton) and goes with her to live in a community of fellow famous lookalikes. There's romance, comedy and tragedy - plus a special variety show - in this generous, warm-spirited tale of people trying to put some distance between their real and their fantasy selves. As you'd expect from Korine, there's plenty of visual invention, surreal humour, great music and a supporting role for director Werner Herzog.
