HOLLYWOOD, June 7, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Daniel Radcliffe’s Manny doll is here… and life size.
Leading up to the nationwide release of “Swiss Army Man,” Manny will be popping up all over the country. Scheduled visits include New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and many more.
Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, “Swiss Army Man” is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan.
Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, “Swiss Army Man” goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends, and ultimately go on an epic adventure that will bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.
“Swiss Army Man” creates a world like no other — a place of pure fantastical imagination, brimming with magical realism, yet featuring two characters whose dreams and fears are entirely relatable.
Dano and Radcliffe both fully commit to their directors’ audacious vision, and their work is exceptional, finding the perfect balance of humor and heart that drives the whole film.
A celebration of all the wonders cinema has to offer, “Swiss Army Man” is a cultural phenomenon in the making; a surreal and wholly original examination of human vulnerability and connection that must be experienced.
