Do you ever get the feeling that people are incapable of not caring?
From Darren Aronofsky comes The Whale. Charlie (Brendan Fraser) is an English teacher living with severe obesity whose time is running out. As he makes a last bold attempt to reconcile with his broken family, Charlie must confront, with his full heart and fierce wit, long-buried traumas and unspoken love that have haunted him for decades. This story of transformation and transcendence delves into one man’s odyssey inside and out of his body. A journey through the depths of grief towards the possibility of salvation.
This Oscar nominated performance starring Golden Globe nominee Hong Chau (Liz) best known for her roles in Downsizing, Inherent Vice and Bojack Horseman, and critically acclaimed actor Brendan Fraser, (Best known for The Mummy, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and George of the Jungle) is a complex, un-conventional love story, both deeply moving and a triumphant drama.
