First Trailer: Charlie Kaufman’s “Anomalisa”

Following gushing praise out of Telluride and winning the Grand Jury Prize honor at the Venice International Film Festival this year, the first trailer has now arrived for filmmaker Charlie Kaufman’s stop motion animated feature “Anomalisa”.

Kaufman and co-director Duke Johnson have created the work in which David Thewlis plays the author of books on the subject of customer service who struggles with his inability to connect to people and ultimately feels crippled by the mundanity of his life.

Then one night he meets a stranger (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who changes his world view. Acclaimed character actor Tom Noonan voices every other character in the film which opens at the end of the year.
