In Maladies, James Franco plays a semi-washed up soap opera star in the 1960s, appropriately named James. James not only struggles with his floundering career, but with his seemingly failing mind and his fluctuating relationships with those close to him. James also hears voices in his head, personified by an overbearing narrator-voice, which could get interesting.
Maladies will have a limited theater-run in the U.S. beginning on March 21st, 2014.[via First Showing]
