The Big Picture
December 7 -
"It moves, with supple muscularity, toward a twisty and satisfying conclusion." —Washington Post
"'The Big Picture' has been compared to 'The Talented Mr. Ripley,' the twice-filmed Patricia Highsmith novel about a sociopath who kills and then impersonates a rich acquaintance. But in spirit it's closer to Michelangelo Antonioni's 1975 'The Passenger,' with Jack Nicholson as an existential adventurer who poses as a dead stranger." —NPR
Paul Exben is a success story—a great job, a beautiful wife and two wonderful sons. Except that this is not the life he has been dreaming of. A moment of madness is going to change his life, forcing him to assume a new identity that will enable him to live his life fully. Director Eric Lartigau explores themes of identity and creativity as he tracks this unique fugitive on a gripping journey from Paris and Brittany to Montenegro and points beyond, eliciting suspense out of one man’s fear of getting caught after he engineers the ultimate fresh start.
