The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
On April 8, 2000, aspiring artist Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) became a victim of a violent assault when five men beat him up and left him for dead. Following the attack, Mark was left with little to no memory of his previous life due to brain damage inflicted by his attackers. In a desperate attempt to regain his memories, Hogancamp constructs a miniature World War II village called Marwen in his yard to help in his recovery. Unfortunately, Mark's demons come back to haunt him when he's asked to testify against the five men that attacked him..
In the hobby store, when Mark checks out the miniature medals, the Purple Heart he buys has a reference label next to it reading CRM-114. CRM-114 is a piece of radio equipment in Stanley Kubrick's "Doctor Strangelove". The code has then been used by Kubrick in latter films and by other filmmakers as a tribute to him. See more »

Ok I've read a lot of reviews calling this movie a disaster and such, but I have to say I really enjoyed this movie! There were definitely some plot errors and some awkward writing points but I really wnjoyed the story and the cinematography was beautiful. The transitions between the real world and the doll world were flawless. Please give this movie a chance and make up your own mind about it.
