Before “Dallas Buyers Club” hits theaters on Nov. 1, Jared Leto‘s big-screen comeback begins with the release of “Mr. Nobody,” a science-fiction fantasy film about a man who never makes any decisions in life.
The premise may be puzzling, but writer/director Jaco Van Dormael’s exploration of choice and consequence sure does look pretty.
And pretty confusing, too. Mr. Nobody’s journey appears to begin when he’s faced with choosing whether to stay with his father (Rhys Ifans) or mother (Natasha Little) as they’re about to separate. But only dummies make choices.
“We cannot go back. That’s why it’s hard to choose. You have to make the right choice,” the mysterious character explains as a boy. “As long as you don’t choose, everything remains possible.”
Magnolia pictures is releasing the surreal drama on Sept. 26.
