Robin Williams Gets Obsessive

Mark Romanek's feature stars ROBIN WILLIAMS in a role that has been described as "the most significant image overhaul since Travolta traded up from Look Who's Talking to Pulp Fiction." (Gear Magazine)

Academy Award(s) winner Williams portrays Sy Parrish, a lonely photo technician at the local SavMart. When events threaten to disrupt the lives of the picture perfect family he has become obsessed with, Parrish will stop at nothing to preserve the homelife he has grown to think of as his own. Box Office Magazine commented "Not since American Beauty has a film so effectively skewered the American Dream."

One Hour Photo marks the screenwriting and directorial debut of veteran music video director MARK ROMANEK. During his eleven-year career, Romanek has made groundbreaking videos for artists including Madonna, Beck, Lenny Kravitz, Macy Gray, David Bowie, R.E.M., Janet Jackson and has received numerous accolades, including more than a dozen MTV Video Awards, two Grammys and three Billboard Music Awards. Two of Romanek's music videos, Madonna's 'Bedtime Story' and Nine Inch Nails's 'Closer' have become part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art. In 1997, MTV presented Romanek with the prestigious Video Vanguard award honouring his unprecedented achievement in the art of music video.

One Hour Photo is produced by CHRISTINE VACHON and PAMELA KOFFLER whose joint credits include arthouse classics Happiness, I Shot Andy Warhol, Kids and Go Fish, along with Academy Award winner Boys Don't Cry, and by STAN WLODKOWSKI who co-produced American Beauty.
