Synopsis

Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas)’s madcap science fiction epic The Zero Theorem stars two- time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the complete lack of one – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including flirtatious Bainsley (Me´lanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.
