TWILIGHT star Robert Pattinson demonstrates there’s more bite to his acting than simply playing a handsome vampire in the latest David Cronenberg film, Cosmopolis (2012, 15), which is being screened at the Splendid Cinema on Sunday (April 28).
Adapted from the acclaimed novel by Don Dellilo, Cronenberg’s film focuses on a 28-year-old multi-billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson), whose limo journey across a futuristic Manhattan becomes something of a confrontation with everyone who is directly affected by the heartless demeanour of his luxurious lifestyle.
Cosmopolis features a fine array of international stars including Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton and Jay Baruchel.
Worcester’s only independent cinema will also be screening Irish: On Purpose, a short film by Olivia James, before Cosmopolis as part of its support for local filmmakers.
The screening starts at Worcester Arts Workshop on Sansome Street at 6.30pm with the box office open from 6pm
