“I have my art, and I have my friends. I’ll be OK.” So says Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell), who survives a vicious assault by a group of “Nazi thugs” that wipes away all of his memories and leaves him physically shattered. Instead of giving up, he gets even in a most unusual manner.
Billed as “the miraculous true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit", WELCOME TO MARWEN follows Hogancamp as he puts together pieces from his old and new life and meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. Through building an astonishing art installation — a testament to the most powerful women he knows — through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.
Robert Zemeckis wrote and directed this inspirational dramedy, which also stars Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Falk Hentschel and Janelle Monae.
