Synopsis

Captivating performances abound in this gripping drama detailing Hungarian actor and star personality Győző Szabó’s epic clash with hard-nosed psychiatrist Dr. Imre Csemus on his journey to overcome addiction and reclaim his life. Just as Győző’s career is soaring, his personal life plummets precipitously – and only one thing, or one person, can save him. But in his dogmatic effort to save his narcissistic patient, will the doctor’s own ego take him down as well? Adapted from the actor’s memoir.

  124 minutes
