Welcome to Marwen

Robert Zemeckis's creative, artsy, factually based, well-acted, metaphor-filled, star-dotted (Diane Kruger, Siobhan Williams, Stefanie von Pfetten, Neil Jackson, and Leslie Zemeckis), 116-minute film inspired by Jeff Malmberg's 2010 documentary Marwencol in which PTSD-afflicted photographer and artist Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell), who works odd jobs at a bar in New York and has an odd shoes fetish, uses his artistic skills to build a miniature WWII Belgian town and then escapes into a world of sexy, come-to-life, gut-toting, action-figure dolls that are based on women in his life, including his Russian caregiver (Gwendoline Christie), a new neighbor (Leslie Mann), a coworker (Eiza González), a physical therapist (Janelle Monáe), and a smitten toy store clerk (Merritt Wever), that eventually helps him recover from a brutal, near-fatal beating from five white supremacists.
