Cast: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, John C. Reilly.Summary: Based on the acclaimed play ‘God of Carnage’ by Yasmina Reza, and directed by legendary auteur Roman Polanski, ‘Carnage’ pits power couple Nancy (Kate Winslet) and Alan Cowan (Christoph Waltz) against the liberal writer and campaigner Penelope Longstreet (Jodie Foster) and her wholesaler husband, Michael (John C. Reilly). Unpredictable and shocking, the film hilariously exposes the hypocrisy lurking behind their polite façade. Following a playground scuffle between their 11-year old children, the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort it out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four of the well-heeled American parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage in this hilarious new comedy.
