'Welcome To Marwen' features a huge nod to one of Robert Zemeckis' most iconic movies that will catch audiences completely unaware.
Welcome To Marwen. It’s a dramatic retelling of the story first told in the acclaimed 2010 documentary Marwencol, of Mark Hogancamp, an artist whose life is changed forever when he’s dealt a brutal beating by a gang of thugs. The attack deprives Mark (played in the film by Steve Carell) of his memory and, as part of his therapy, the artist builds a toy WW2 town – Marwen – which he populates with dolls inspired by people in his life, and Hoagie, his doll avatar.
Steve Carell has admitted to feeling "like an idiot" while wearing a skintight grey leotard for the performance capture scenes in his new movie 'Welcome To Marwen'.
Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Flight, Cast Away) directs Steve Carell in the moving true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit. In UK cinemas 11 January, 2019
