The Congress

Available on iTunes
More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with THE PRINCESS BRIDE, an ageing actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. A Hollywood studio will control her captured 'image' and she will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son and her digitised character will stay forever young. 20 years later, under the creative vision of the studio's head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright's digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, she is invited to take part in 'The Congress' convention as she makes her comeback straight into the world of future fantasy cinema.
