When asked to provide a synopsis, Korine offered this: "In broad terms, it's a movie about a Michael Jackson impersonator living in Paris who's down on his luck. He meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator at a commune where all these other impersonators live. They want to put on a show in hopes that the world will come see them perform. She convinces him to go to this place and things happen. At the same time, there's a story about nuns jumping out of airplanes." All that plus an ensemble cast for the ages including Diego Luna (Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN), Samantha Morton (MORVERN CALLAR), Denis Lavant (HOLY MOTORS), Leos Carax (BOY MEETS GIRL), Werner Herzog, and street magician David Blaine. LONELY marks to this day what is probably Korine's greatest balancing act with beaucoup characters & an effortless juggling of black comedy, gut-punching emotionality, and love for chosen family.
