Edmond

Synopsis
'You are not where you belong’ says the fortune teller, and Edmond (William H.Macy) begins his descent onto a darkly funny yet horrifying urban hell in this compelling film adapted from the play written by David Mamet. The encounter causes Edmond to confront the emptiness of his life and marriage, prompting him to flee the safe boredom of is home for the vortex of the dark streets of LA, tilting him into a free-fall that he mistakes for liberation. As Edmond spirals on towards personal disintegration, his racism and homophobia emerges - and he freely expresses it.
