Saw The Congress about a month ago. A bizarre, fascinating movie that isn't done justice by its trailer. Based on a Stanislaw Lem novel, the movie follows Robin Wright, playing a version of herself, who sells her digital image in perpetuity, having to give up acting forever. The trailer makes it seem like the film is about a search for her son... and parts of it are, but much of it is not. The description in the third sentence makes it seem a commentary about digitization and who owns the rights to your image... and parts of it are, but much of it is not.

It's kind of hard to say what this movie was about, but regardless, I recommend it highly.
