Writer/director Ari Folman

) who sells her likeness to a powerful film studio, which in turn transforms her essence into a chemical compound suitable for consumption by the masses. Harvey Keitel
, Danny Huston
, Jon Hamm
, and Paul Giamatti
co-star in this ambitious feature that blends live-action with animation to offer a cautionary look at the future of entertainment.
