"A new comedy of no manners."
CARNAGE is a razor sharp, biting comedy that centres on parental differences. After two boys fight it out in a playground, the parents of the "victim" invite the parents of the "bully" over to work out their issues.
However, a polite discussion of childrearing soon escalates into verbal warfare, with all four parents revealing their true colours. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage.
CARNAGE stars Academy Award-winner Kate Winslet (MILDRED PIERCE, THE READER) and Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz (WATER FOR ELEPHANTS, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS) as husband and wife Nancy and Alan, opposite Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster (PANIC ROOM, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) and John C Reilly (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, MAGNOLIA) as Penelope and Michael, respectively.
Yasmina Reza joined Roman Polanski in adapting her play "The God of Carnage" for the screen.
