Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg is back! NYC, the near-future: Eric Packer is a 28 year-old finance golden boy dreaming of living in a civilization ahead of this one. As he is chauffeured across town to get a haircut, an eruption of wild activity unfolds in the streets and he watches a dark shadow fall over the Wall Street galaxy of which he is the king. As threats of the real world infringe on his cloud of virtual convictions, his paranoia intensifies during the course of a 24-hour cross-town odyssey.
