Only Harmony Korine (writer of Kids, auteur of Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy) could weave Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, her daughter Shirley Temple, and flying nuns into a hypnotically funny and truly poignant tale. Mister Lonely marks Korine's return and became an audience favorite at the Cannes, Toronto, and SXSW Film Festivals. A lonely Michael Jackson impersonator wanders the streets of Paris in search of something grand when he meets an enchantingly beautiful Marilyn Monroe, who invites Michael to join her at a commune solely inhabited by other impersonators. At the commune, Michael and Marilyn alongside her husband Charlie Chaplin, the Queen of England, Abraham Lincoln, Sammy Davis Jr., and a host of other impersonators prepare for a star-studded stage show. As the performers rehearse for their performance, a miracle is occurring several continents away involving a Latin American priest (the legendary Werner Herzog) and his missionary of nuns who literally soar through the sky in search of their own answers.
