Story


A daring new film from internationally acclaimed multimedia artist Carter, "Maladies" charts the struggles of an unstable former soap opera star (James Franco) in 1960's New York as he tries to restart his floundering creative career. Hoping to find clarity and new purpose as a writer, he holes up with his eccentric sister (Fallon Goodson) at the seaside home of their best friend (Catherine Keener). But as he disappears further into his own mind, reality begins to slip through his grasp. Featuring an award-winning ensemble, including David Straithairn and Alan Cumming, "Maladies" is a heartfelt but defiantly unconventional exploration of the creative mind.‚Äč

“..if the story is supposedly set in the early 1960s, why the lengthy reference to 1978's Jonestown massacre? Just asking..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times]
“..i can't remember another actor with his ability and looks who wastes so much time making so many worthless movies nobody wants to see..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
