Daniel Radcliffe is a puppet. Sort of. At least in a new movie written and directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.
“Swiss Army Man,” a bittersweet comedy-drama, also starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Paul Dano, is about Hank (Dano) being stranded on a lonely island. After failing to escape, he prepares to make his life an end. And then sees a mysterious body washed up on the beach. It is the puppet.
Hank names him Manny and discovers his abilty for superpowers – and everything involved…
Here is a trailer to the movie that also got a screening at the famous independent Sundance Film Festival. Where reviews were mixed. The British Guardian reports: “It’s coarse and it’s stupid, but it is, thanks mostly the two good performances and some stylish use of music and editing, a little bit moving.“
