“Brings 1930s Hollywood to dazzling life”
– Zack Sharf, IndieWire
About the film:
1930s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Orson Welles’ iconic masterpiece, Citizen Kane (1941).
About the filmmakers:
Mank is David Fincher’s first feature since the critically acclaimed Gone Girl (2014). Though known for his intricate psychological thrillers, Fincher evolved his filmmaking style crafting music videos. His films have received thirty Academy Award nominations, including Best Director for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and The Social Network (2010). IndieWire ranked his feature filmography, which also includes intricate thriller Seven (1995), cult classic Fight Club (1999), and Palme d’Or nominated Zodiac (2007).
Stunning, nostalgic black and white cinematography from Erik Messerschmidt, who also worked with Fincher on the series Mindhunter.
Fincher’s father, Jack, wrote the script for Mank in the 1990s. Jack, who passed away in 2003, could be in contention for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards this year.See our upcoming films
