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..

How Can People Not Like This?
23 December 2018 | by slocumjohnoSee all my reviews

Unique, fresh and moving. I guess the idea of not doing something formulaic turns of critics. I read these reviews and I can only think they must have watched a different movie.

Carell was great as he seems to be in almost everything these days. I found the whole cast wonderful.
