Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (MÃ©lanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.
The Zero Theorem will be released on iTunes on August 19th, and will be released in theaters on September 19th.
