Beautifully shot and timeless, "The Limits of Control" delivers a surreal neo-noir, detective story unlike anything you have ever seen!
One morning Mel a mousy harried New Yorker with a thankless job and an even-less-appealing boyfriend learns that the tumour in her throat is cancerous; the diagnosis is terminal. Rather than lying down and dying then and there she embarks on an endless spree the kind of self-indulgent wish fulfilment that we have all fantasized about. This beautifully realized parable speaks volumes about living. Overflowing with an energy and vitality that belies the initial darkness of its narrative The Guitar is a transcendent respite from the turmoil of our troubled times. It is sure to capture both your imagination and your heart.
Cara Buono (Mad Men, The Sopranos) stars as Joanne Schwartzbaum - a gloomy, glum and perpetually dissatisfied Brooklyn housewife who has been dragging her feet for far too long. She's drifted apart from her down-to-earth husband (David Lansbury), and her head's in the stars? After encountering cosmic forces in her own home, Joanne develops some kooky habits (think fascination with dead fish'), and joins a UFO support group to help solve the mystery. There, she meets Abraham (Isaach De BankolÃ©), an Ã©migrÃ© from the Ivory Coast who shares the same fan-shaped branding mark on his skin. The two quickly learn an undeniable truth: aliens are among us, and it's no fluke. With their support team behind them, Joanne and Abraham embark on an outlandish mission to foil their alien counterparts and defend the planet. There'll be sleuthing, romance, and a guy in a skin-tight bodysuit (Joel De La Fuente, Law and Order). This nutty sci-fi spoof from award-winning writer-director Barry Strugatz (Married to the Mob, She-Devil), is as unexpectedly meaningful as the aliens in Joanne's kitchen.
